WHO Recommends Renaming Monkeypox As “mpox”. The New York Times reports, “The World Health Organization, responding to complaints that the word monkeypox conjures up racist tropes and stigmatizes patients, is recommending that the name of the disease be changed to mpox.” Both of the “names are to be used for a year until monkeypox is phased out.” WHO said in a statement that it “will adopt the term mpox in its communications, and encourages others to follow these recommendations, to minimize any ongoing negative impact of the current name and from adoption of the new name.” protect-usb.mimecast.com/s/r1u-Cvm6QGs7gwzSkdLHg?domain=mailview.bulletinhealthcare.com ...
