According to the Ministry of Health in South Africa, the public should observe good hygiene practices and other preventative measures to fight against coronavirus and other infectious diseases and to prevent the spread of the virus.

A great deal of countries take measures to stop spreading the virus. Fot instance, Brazil has set up a situation centre to monitor the monkeypox spread scenario. This measure aims to draw up an action plan to follow up suspicious cases and in determining the clinical and laboratory diagnosis of the disease.

The Department of Health together with the NICD constantly assess the risk for local transmission in collaboration with the WHO in line with the International Health Regulations.
