Kerala reports India’s second Monkeypox case | India News

NEW DELHI: Kerala on Monday reported India’s second case of Monkey smallpox, just three days after the first case was discovered. Health Minister Veena George said “the second positive case has been confirmed in Kannur district”.
Officials say a 31-year-old Kannur native has been infected and is being treated at Pariyaram Medical College. He came back from Dubai on July 13.
“The patient’s health is reported to be positive. His close contacts have been monitored,” Mr. George said.
Last week, the first case of monkeypox was confirmed from Kerala. A 35 year old man from UAE a few days ago was admitted to Thiruvananthapuram medical college. While in the UAE, the patient was in close contact with a person who tested positive for the disease.
People who suspect symptoms should seek medical help immediately. Fever, headache, rash, and blisters on the face, in the mouth, and other parts of the body are the main symptoms. Because the disease is spread through bodily fluids, patients and suspects must cover their bodies adequately to avoid spreading the disease.
