    The number of confirmed cases of monkeypox in Mexico rose to 386, the Ministry of Health reported Tuesday.

    The figure represents an increase of 134 validated infections by the monkeypox virus, that is, an increase of 53 percent in one week.

    The age group from 30 to 39 years continues to be the most affected by the disease in Mexico, accounting for 47.2 percent of all confirmed cases, that is, 182 of the 386.

    Health reported that so far, four cases of monkeypox in minors are known: two belong to 18-year-olds, while the other two patients are 3 and 9 years old, respectively. .

    On the other hand, Mexico City continues to be the entity with the most confirmed cases, since it now has 209, 68 more infections than was reported a week ago. Jalisco appears in second place with 69 confirmed cases. Both entities represent more than 70 percent of the infections reported by the Institute of Epidemiological Diagnosis and Reference (InDRE).

    Monkeypox reaches more entities

    According to the report from the Ministry of Health, monkeypox has already reached 24 of the 32 states, 4 more states compared to its report last week.

    The agency said that currently 172 cases are under study to confirm whether it is monkeypox, while another 304 have been ruled out.

    If you suspect that you have been infected with monkeypox or have been in contact with a confirmed case, the recommendation is voluntary isolation at home and notify those who have had close contact with him or her.

    Simultaneously, you must call your health care service (IMSS or ISSSTE, or alternatively, the Condesa clinics of the Mexico City Ministry of Health).

      First monkeypox death in Mexico: Everything we know
      The death of a person from septic shock, acquired pneumonia and HIV could be the first death from monkeypox in Mexico.
      By

      08/23/2022

      Until August 22, 386 infections have been confirmed in 24 states of the country.
      The death of a person from septic shock, acquired pneumonia and HIV infection could be the first death from monkeypox in Mexico.
      Worldwide there have been 41 thousand 664 cases and 12 deaths.

      The health situation around the world remains at a complicated time due to all the problems that occur at the same time. Only in our country today was a death announced that could be the first caused by monkeypox in Mexico.

      All part of the official information published by the Ministry of Health (SSa). What it mentions is that until August 22, 386 infections have been confirmed in 24 states of the country.

      The Institute of Epidemiological Diagnosis and Reference (InDRE) reported that the positive cases are distributed in: Mexico City, 209 infections; Jalisco, 69; State of Mexico, 21; Yucatan, 20; Quintana Roo, 12; Baja California, eight; Nuevo Leon, seven; Chiapas, five; Veracruz, five; Puebla, four; Tabasco, four; Morelos, three; Colima, two; Chihuahua, two; Guanajuato, two; Oaxaca, two; Queretaro, two; Sinaloa, two; Sound, two; Aguascalientes, one; Baja California Sur, one; Coahuila, one; Michoacán, one, and San Luis Potosí, one.
      Characteristics of the patients

      Of the total confirmed cases, 97 percent correspond to men and three percent to women. 47.2 percent of people are between 30 and 39 years old; that is, 182. Likewise, four are under 20 years old; 90, from 20 to 29; 81 between 40 and 49; 25 from 50 to 59; and four people, 60 years or older.

      In detail, the Weekly Technical Report on Epidemiological Surveillance mentions that a total of 862 people who meet the operational definition of a probable case have been identified. Of that number there are 386 that have been confirmed, in addition to 172 under study and 304 ruled out by laboratory tests.
      The first death from monkeypox in Mexico?

      The same document adds that one person died of septic shock, acquired pneumonia and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection. At the same time, when medical care was offered, it was identified that he had lesions compatible with monkeypox, and the test was positive.

      Based on the above, the death is carefully analyzed by a group of experts in infectology to determine if there is a cause attributable to monkeypox virus infection.

      It is still too early to say that the patient's death was directly caused by monkeypox, although some portals have already made the news official. The reality is that it is appropriate to wait until the results of the analyzes are obtained to be certain of the origin of death...

          Mexico records 504 cases of monkeypox
          The most recent report from the Ministry of Health details that in Mexico there are 504 confirmed cases of monkeypox, in 25 states
          August 30, 2022

          In Mexico there are 504 cases of monkeypox, reported the Ministry of Health.

          As of August 29, the authorities identified 1,146 suspected infections, of which 504 were confirmed, 390 were ruled out, and 252 are still under study.

          The confirmed cases come from 25 states. Mexico City adds 279 infections; followed by Jalisco with 84; State of Mexico with 31; Yucatan with 29 and Quintana Roo with 14.

          97 percent of confirmed cases correspond to men and the remaining 3 percent to women. The age group most affected by the disease is 30 to 39 years.

          The Ministry of Health recalls that monkeypox is transmitted by direct contact with the secretions of a sick person through mucous membranes or skin lesions, respiratory droplets and objects contaminated with body fluids. It lasts on average 21 days.

          It can be prevented by avoiding direct physical contact with people who are sick or suspected of having the disease. Sexual contact is an activity that must be taken into account, since it is spread by very close contact between two or more people.

                Mexico accumulates 1,511 confirmed cases of monkeypox; analyze 2 possible deaths from the virus
                By Aristegui News
                September 13, 2022

                Mexico adds 1,051 cases of monkeypox in 30 states of the country until September 12, the Ministry of Health reported in a statement notifying that 98 percent of infections correspond to men and 2% to women.

                In the Weekly Technical Report on Epidemiological Surveillance, the institution also reported that two people died during medical care and tested positive for monkeypox, presenting lesions compatible with the disease.

                "These deaths are under analysis by a group of experts in infectious diseases, to determine if there is a cause attributable to monkeypox virus infection," says the report.

                The Institute of Epidemiological Diagnosis and Reference (InDRE) reported that, of the positive cases, 606 infections are recorded in Mexico City. Similarly, the other entities that accumulate the highest number of cases of monkeypox are Jalisco with 156 infections and Yucatan with 59.

                The other states where infections were reported are Quintana Roo with 28; Lower California, 10; Chiapas, 17; New Leon, 11; Veracruz, seven; Guanajuato, six; Nayarit, six; Sinaloa, five; Puebla, six; Tabasco, 13; Chihuahua, five; Morelos, six; Queretaro, four; Colima, two; Oaxaca, four; Sound, three; Aguascalientes, four.

                While the entities that report fewer cases are Baja California Sur with one; Coahuila, two; Michoacan, two; Tamaulipas, two; San Luis Potosí, one; Campeche, two; Hidalgo, two; Zacatecas, one, and Guerrero, one.

                Likewise, the health unit indicates that the disease is transmitted by direct physical contact between sick people and that sexual activity is a factor that must be taken into account, since the recent outbreak mainly affects men who have sex with men.

                “There are practices that can increase the risk of infections, including monkeypox, such as: sex with unknown people, dark rooms or sex parties; this, due to the close contact between people during these activities,” says the institution's statement.

                On the other hand, the unit asks to constantly wash personal items such as towels or sheets if caring for a family member with the disease and avoid approaching other people if they have symptoms.

                It should be noted that activists and members of the LGBT+ community protested outside the Ministry of Health in Mexico City over the weekend to demand the vaccine and prompt response from the health authorities in the face of the increase in cases in the country.
