Now that many parts of the world have moved on from COVID, should we be worried about monkeypox?

Certainly, but we need to know more about the disease, former CDC chief Tom Frieden tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

We humans, Frieden explains, "are connected by the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, the planes we travel on," so "anywhere in the world can connect with anywhere in the world within just a day or two."

Until we put more money toward research, he adds, we won't be able to control infectious diseases — rather, they will continue to control us.
