Lyatali Lofemba, whose three-year-old child died from monkeypox, sits in front of her house in Yaboya village, Yakusu, Tshopo, Democratic Republic of Congo, October 4, 2022. Monkeypox was first detected in Congo 50 years ago, but cases have spiked in West and Central Africa since 2019. The illness received little attention until it spread worldwide this year, infecting 77,000 people. In poorer African countries where many people do not have quick access to health facilities, or are not aware of the dangers, over 130 have died, almost all in Congo, according to Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC).
