    WHO renames Monkeypox over racism concerns

    Published

    on

    Henceforth, Monkeypox will be referred to as ‘mpox’.

    The renaming of the disease by the World Health Organization, WHO, comes after health experts pushed for a ‘non-racist and discriminatory’ term for it following a global surge of cases.

    Despite the name change, the WHO says ‘mpox’ would be used simultaneously with monkeypox for one year. Thereafter, monkeypox would be phased out.

    Safety is the most important factor to consider when choosing an electrical cable. Because cables are the primary carrier of electricity in your home, you need to make sure every aspect of safety is taken into account. Electric wires are designed to withstand constant electrical current, which means they won’t cause a fire in the event of an accident/short circuit.

    Power cables and wires are one of the most common causes of electrical failure. People often overlook the importance of this material.
