Uruguay confirms MonkeyPox cases
Out of the four cases of monkeypox suspected in Uruguay, discovered, three of them were have tested negative for Monkeypox. They have been denied after health officials said on Sunday found that two of the cases were not monkeypox and another was earlier diagnosed as dengue fever.
“The early findings of the samples obtained from patients with symptoms connected to monkey or monkeypox were negative,” the Uruguayan Ministry of Public Health (MSP) said. In addition, he said that the Institut Pasteur (IP) would be preparing “genomic sequencing” of the collected samples in the following days.
One among the suspected instances “had previously been ruled out since the extracted material was recognised as dengue fever,” according to the text.
Patients are continuing to develop well, according to the health department and persons who exhibit “skin rash photos along with fever or feverish feeling,” particularly if any travel history is present in the recent 21 days, should seek “urgent” consultation.
The Montevideo PI reported on June 2 that the Center for Innovation in Epidemiological Surveillance will begin “working on the detection and monitoring of the presence” of the virus in the country “starting this month.”
According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) latest status report on monkeypox, there are 780 cases associated with the present epidemic in non-endemic nations, with 88 per cent of them confirmed in Europe.
