In humans, the signs and symptoms of monkeypox are similar to those of smallpox, but usually milder. People can get monkeypox from an infected animal through a bite or direct contact with the infected animal?s blood, body fluids, or lesions. The disease also can be spread from person to person, but it is much less infectious than smallpox. TEM
