Monkeypox is a viral disease that produces pox lesions on the skin and is closely related to smallpox but is not nearly as deadly as smallpox was. Majority of cases are transmitted from animals to humans by direct contact. Person-to-person transfer, probably by droplets, can occur infrequently.
Bayelsa, Rivers and Akwa Ibom states have reported cases of the disease.
It is no longer news that there’s a viral disease called ‘Monkeypox’ which has spread over seven states in Nigeria with 31 cases recorded.
The virus occurs basically when a person comes in contact with the carrier; might be an animal, infected humans or materials contaminated with the virus. Person to person transmission can occur infrequently perhaps by means of respiratory droplets as it enters the body through broken skin (hidden ones too), respiratory tract, or mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth). Animal-human transmission may occur by scratch, bite, bushmeat consumption, direct contact with body fluids or indirect contact with lesion materials such as a contaminated bed, clothing and linens.
According to ‘MedicineNet’, the Monkeypox is also closely relative to smallpox so treatment may consist of immediate vaccination with smallpox vaccine. Treatment with an antiviral drug or human immune globulin has been done.
