MonkeyPox: Plateau Records Two Positive Cases

The Plateau State Government has confirmed that the state has recorded two positive cases of monkeypox in Shendam Local Government Area of the state.
Dr Kunden Deyin, the state Commissioner for Health, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Jos that the first case recorded was imported from Port-Harcourt, as the victim came in from Rivers for treatment.
According to the commissioner, the infected victim eventually infected his brother and both of them were treated at the Bingham University Teaching Hospital in Jos and discharged.

He said that the disease is primarily transmitted from animal to man while the secondary source of transmission is through human to human contact. ‎‎
Deyin warned that people who kill, touch or cook bush animals, such as rats, squirrels and monkeys were at risk of contracting the disease as they serve as reservoirs of the virus.
He cautioned the public to desist from indulging in such acts.
‎Deyin also called on the public to report any sign of unexplained rashes to the nearest health facility.
He further disclosed that the number of suspected cases has risen from the initial 87 suspected cases on Tuesday to 126 suspected cases.

He also called on the public to report cases of diarrhoea and vomiting to the nearest health facility.
NAN recalls that the state had recorded five confirmed cases, three deaths from symptoms similar to cholera and 87 cases.
