    Monkey pox

    As of June 20, 2022, 171 cases of monkeypox have been reported in Quebec.


    Symptoms

    The reported symptoms consist mainly of skin lesions on the mouth and genitals. These lesions may be preceded or accompanied by:
    • fever;
    • night sweats;
    • headache;
    • swollen glands;
    • joint or muscle pain.
    If you have been in close contact (for example, sexual contact or someone living in the same household) with someone with these symptoms, watch for symptoms for 21 days after your last contact with this person. If you live with a person who has the symptoms mentioned, avoid sleeping in the same bed with them and sharing personal items (e.g. bedding, clothes, dishes, etc.), limit your contact with them and wear a mask in his presence.

    If you have compatible symptoms, promptly see a healthcare professional for an evaluation, wear a mask, and cover the lesions. Before your consultation, notify the clinical setting.

    People suspected of having the disease will be contacted by the Public Health Department. They will have to isolate themselves at home, avoid contact with other members of the household as much as possible, avoid sexual contact, wear a mask when in contact with other people, cover the lesions (clothes or bandages) , avoid sharing objects (bedding, clothes, utensils, etc.) and practice general hygiene measures such as hand washing and respiratory etiquette. Isolation may be lifted once the scabs covering the skin lesions have fallen off and a layer of healthy skin is present or as recommended by the doctor if another diagnosis is made.
    It is especially important to avoid contact with immunocompromised people, pregnant women and children under 12 until all the scabs have fallen off, as these people are at greater risk.

          Monkeypox: Outbreak update

          ...

          Current situation

          Canada



          The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is working with provincial and territorial public health partners to investigate cases of monkeypox in Canada. As the investigation evolves, it is anticipated that additional cases will be reported in Canada. Provinces and territories have publicly reported 210 cases of monkeypox as of June 22, 2022 at 1:00 pm EDT.
          British Columbia 2
          Alberta 4
          Ontario 33
          Quebec 171
          Total 210
          PHAC is continuing to collect and analyze epidemiological information reported by the provinces and territories to help define the national scope of the investigation and to determine if there are any increased health risks to people in Canada. Going forward, case numbers may change as provinces and territories continue to receive confirmatory testing results from PHAC's National Microbiology Laboratory. On an ongoing basis, provinces and territories are reviewing case data in their jurisdictions and those that meet the case definition will be reported to PHAC to be included in the national investigation.

                      Ontario has confirmed 67 cases of monkeypox with 54 reported by Toronto Public Health.

                      Three cases were diagnosed in Ottawa, two in Halton Region, two in Middlesex-London, and one each in Durham Region, Haldimand-Norfolk, Peel Region, Peterborough Public Health, Simcoe-Muskoka, and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph.

                      An additional five probable cases are being assessed in four males and one female.

                      All confirmed cases were in males aged 23 to 60, with an average age of just under 38, Public Health Ontario (PHO) said Tuesday in an update covering the time period of May 20-June 27.

                      “The most commonly reported symptoms include rash, oral/genital lesions, swollen lymph nodes, headache, fever, chills, myalgia and fatigue,” the report says...

                      PHO says the public should be aware that close contact with someone who has the monkeypox rash, sore or scabs increases the potential risk.
