The first three cases of monkey flu were confirmed in Poznań. People infected with the virus came to the capital of Greater Poland from Spain and the United States. The sick are in hospital and their condition is considered good – said a spokesman for the Sanpit Health Center in Greater Poland on Tuesday.
The detection of monkeypox virus in the capital of the region was first reported by local radio Poznań. Wieslawa Kostuj, a spokeswoman for the Provincial Health and Epidemiology Center in Poznań, said on Friday that three patients had contracted the disease. “These people have been hospitalized and are believed to be in good condition,” he said.
As Kostuj pointed out, one of the victims was a foreigner, while the other two were Polish citizens. Two flew to Poznań from Spain, one from the United States. The spokesperson added that the epidemiological interview conducted has not yet confirmed that the victim had extensive contact with others and hence they should be quarantined.
Monkey pox is a rare zoonotic viral disease that commonly occurs in West and Central Africa. Symptoms include fever, headache and a skin rash that starts on the face and spreads to other parts of the body. According to the World Health Organization, symptoms usually disappear after two or three weeks.
According to the May amendment of the Minister of Health’s directive on infectious diseases requiring hospitalization, hospitalization was introduced for those infected or infected with monkey fever and those suspected of being infected or infected with the disease. There is a duty to report every case
