Monkey pox warning: After the corona virus, the threat of monkey pox is now developing worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) says monkeypox is endemic in more than 21 countries. So far more than 200 people have been confirmed infected with the virus.
Currently in India, the Medical Research Council of India (ICMR) has issued a warning about monkeypox.
Small children are at high risk
ICMR says young children are more likely to be affected by the disease. Due to this it is necessary to monitor its symptoms. At present, it has not been confirmed that anyone in India is affected by monkey pox.
However, the government is on high alert for the outbreak. So far 226 people in 21 countries have been confirmed to have monkeypox. The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday that nearly 100 suspected cases of monkeypox have been reported from countries where they are not commonly diagnosed.
In view of the monkeypox flu, the Federal Ministry of Health has instructed all states to visit hospitals recently affected by monkeypox and instruct hospitals to monitor patients with symptoms of the disease.
The Ministry of Health has asked that such patients be kept in isolation. A man who went to Canada has been placed in isolation because he had symptoms of monkey pox.
Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated in many countries
Sample testing of this patient at the National Institute of Virology in Pune did not confirm infection. It was not immediately clear at which airport the passenger landed.
The first case of monkeypox was reported in the UK on May 7. Monkey pox has been reported in Britain, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Canada and the United States.
Monkeypox: What are the Symptoms?
Early symptoms of monkeypox include:
– Muscle ache
– back pain
– Inflammation of the glands
– Cold and fatigue
A few days after experiencing the first symptoms of the disease, rash-like symptoms such as measles usually appear. It starts on the face and then spreads to other parts of the body. The rash eventually develops scabies. These scabs will fall off later.
How does monkeypox come about? What is its diffusion capacity?
Monkey pox is not easily spread among people. Most people in West and Central Africa are infected by contact with an infected animal. It is believed that a person can spread the infection only if he has rash.
But, that is a misconception. It can also be spread from person to person through clothing, bedding or towels, skin, and coughs or sneezes from a person with monkeypox.
