South Africa registers another positive case of Monkeypox

The patient is a 32-year old male from the capital of SA

South African Minister of Health, Dr Joe Phaahla calls for vigilance as South Africa registers another positive case of Monkeypox disease. The second patient is a 32-year old male from Cape Town.

Symptoms of the disease usually include fever, headache, muscle pain, backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills and exhaustion.

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.

The health officials continue with contact tracing while closely monitoring the situation and alert clinicians on symptoms to look for. If clinical picture fits with Monkeypox, they are urged to complete case investigation form and send samples to testing.

The country conducts visual observation, temperature screening and completion and analysis of travellers’ health questionnaire when entering the country through airports, border gates and sea ports for early detection and successful treatment of the disease, as reported by the official site of the South African Government.
