Michalis Hadjipantela, Cyprus’s health minister, said Sunday that the island is preparing for a monkeypox outbreak. If necessary, the country will undertake a disease test.
“It’s time.” The general hospital in Nicosia handled a suspected incident flawlessly just a few days ago. He added that even though the crisis never occurred, the way we handled it demonstrated our level of preparation.
Despite an increase in cases around the world, Hadjipantela stated, “Our country is fully equipped.”
We’re conducting tests in Cyprus in case they’re necessary. The Institute of Genetics used this test to investigate the suspected case, and the results were satisfactory, he added.
On June 1, a case of monkeypox was reported, but it turned out to be chickenpox instead.
