Symptoms of monkeypox have been found in a person who returned from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Kerala. The person has a high fever and blisters on the body. According to the information, the person's sample has been sent to the Virology Lab in Pune for confirmation. It is being said that the report will come by late evening. Kerala Health Minister Veena George said that a suspected case of monkeypox had been reported in the state.




Symptoms of monkeypox have been found in a person who returned from the United Arab Emirates three days ago. At present, the person has been kept under the supervision of doctors. The Health Minister said that there is no need to panic. The Health Department has sent samples of the person to Pune Virology Institute to confirm the monkeypox infection (orthopoxvirus). We hope to get the report by this evening. He said that monkeypox was confirmed in a young man living in contact with the suspected patient. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), many more serious diseases are spreading in many countries besides Corona.



About 800 cases of monkeypox have been reported in 27 countries of the world. According to the World Health Organization, as of June 2, 780 cases of monkeypox have been reported in 27 countries of the world. It is a matter of concern that this disease is spreading in those places where this virus is not in the endemic stage. This infection is increasing rapidly. By May 29, 257 cases were reported; by June 2, their number increased to 780. It is a matter of relief that no one has died so far.
