Denmark has registered its first incidence of infection with monkeypox in an adult male who had returned from a trip to Spain, according to the Danish health ministry.

“Health authorities do not expect widespread infection in Denmark, but we are following the situation closely to be prepared for a possible development in the infection situation,” health minister Magnus Heunicke said in a statement on Monday.
