“The first case of monkeypox has been reported on the island.

It is time for all of us to be on the lookout for the clinical symptoms and epidemic criteria of this virus so that we can prevent infection,” the statement said. 

The patient is currently in isolation.

It turns out who he contacted while infected. 

Earlier, WHO Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge told RT that the scale of the spread of monkeypox among humans poses a real danger.
