The World Health Organisation says cases of Monkeypox have tripled in Europe in the past two weeks.
The global health body says there are now 4,500 cases across the bloc.
It says Europe accounts for almost 90% of all lab confirmed cases globally since mid-May.
It's urging governments to scale up their responses to the virus.
There have been 39 cases of Monkeypox recorded here in Ireland so far, according to the Health Protection Surveillance Centre.
