Saint Barthélemy, Guadeloupe, and Saint Martin in observance phase on Monkeypox

No monkeypox cases have been reported in Guadeloupe or the northern islands to date. These areas, like the rest of the country, have been placed on an observation phase since Friday, May 20 under the authority of the Regional Health Agency.

The medical community, specifically the CHU, Institut Pasteur, and regional health professionals’ union, is interested in this device, which informs city officials about the disease, as well as what to do if they suspect it.

If something like this were to happen, the protocol in place stipulates for tight quarantine of the suspect person until the analyses are completed and carried out in a lab in France. The Pasteur Institute of Guadeloupe is not yet capable of performing these new analyses.

Two cases have been suspected to be discovered in Guyana. The news was revealed yesterday by the ARS. No braking measures have yet been taken for flight services to and from Guyana, according to reports.

Since the first suspected case is now confirmed. The second person who lives in the same residence has been sent to solitary confinement. His status, according to the ARS, is stable and there are no worries.

What is monkeypox?

Monkeypox, also known as monkeypox or monkeypox virus disease, is an uncommon illness caused by the monkeypox virus. The majority of cases have been reported in Africa, and catching monkeypox remains is highly unlikely.

What are the symptoms of monkeypox 

Back pain and muscular pains are the most frequent reasons for dizziness. Backaches, swollen glands, chills, and exhaustion are all common symptoms.

After the initial symptoms appear, a rash usually develops one to five days later. The first signs often appear on the face before spreading to other parts of the body.

Over time, the rash transforms from raised red pimples to fluid-filled spots with scabs that eventually fall off.
