      Monkeypox in Mexico: there are 48 infections, according to PAHO
      This represents a 40% increase in infections when compared to those registered until last week.
      July 19, 2022

      The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) reported that until the end of Monday, July 18, in Mexico there is a record of 48 confirmed cases of monkeypox, also known as monkeypox, which represents an increase of 13 cases in relation to to Monday of last week, so one could speak of an increase of close to 40% in infections.

      According to what was revealed, about 94% of the cases occurred in men and, of these, 60% are people living with HIV/AIDS (human immunodeficiency virus / acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). The entities affected by the presence of the virus are Baja California, Mexico City, Colima, State of Mexico, Jalisco, Nuevo León, Quintana Roo and Veracruz.

      To expand the information on the presence of monkeypox in Mexico, PAHO specified that this disease has not left a single death. In addition, he mentioned that the most susceptible age group is 30 to 49 years; however, the Organization pointed out that there are alarming data in relation to the registered cases.

      This is because the cases registered in Mexico have already begun to be community infections, that is, without travel history, so it was suggested to the national government that diagnostic techniques be decentralized to study the transmission of smallpox more widely. bow.

      In this regard, it should be remembered that the federal administration, headed by Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), is in charge of monitoring transmission through the network of laboratories coordinated by the Institute of Epidemiological Diagnosis and Reference (Indre), itself that updates its database and spreads it globally.

      It should be noted that monkeypox has recently arrived in Quintana Roo, this is because the Ministry of Health (SSa) reported this Monday the first case of this disease in the coastal state. In this regard, it was reported that the infected person is male and is of legal age, who is stable and in isolation; however, neither his age nor the suspected form of transmission were specified.

      It was explained that on Monday the 11th, the man requested medical attention after he presented multiple symptoms related to monkeypox, such as skin lesions (exanthema), headache (headache), muscle pain (myalgia) and low-grade fever.

      Reason for which the health authorities followed the corresponding action protocol and he was placed in isolation. Subsequently, several samples were sent to Indre, which confirmed that, indeed, it was the first case of monkeypox in Quintana Roo.

      Although the first case has already arrived in Quintana Roo, most of the cases are concentrated in Jalisco and the national capital, in fact, the first monkeypox patient reported in Mexico was on May 28 and, according to Hugo López -Gatell, Undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, was a 50-year-old person who lived in New York and traveled to CDMX.

      Around the world, the various health institutes have confirmed more than 11,000 cases with a high incidence in Europe, this is because the old continent hosts 80% of the cases, followed by America with 18% and finally, with 2%. , is Africa. In such a way that the health authorities urge the population, particularly the traveler, to be aware of the symptoms that this disease may cause, this by virtue of detecting cases in time and being able to act accordingly.

              Mexico confirms 55 cases of monkeypox and expands preventive measures
              By Focus News / EFE
              07/24/2022

              Mexico City.- The Government of Mexico confirmed 55 cases of monkeypox in the country while expanding prevention, surveillance and control measures for the disease, for which the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a international health emergency.

              In a statement, the Mexican Ministry of Health (SSA) reported that, as of July 23, 55 cases have been confirmed in nine states of the 32 that make up the country. Mexico detected its first case on May 28. After being declared a public health emergency of international importance (ESPII), the WHO presented a series of recommendations for the member countries of this organization.

              "The ESPII declaration meets several criteria, not necessarily because it is a serious or rapidly spreading disease," the SSa noted in the note.

              In addition, he said that the WHO “considers it as mild, self-limited and of low transmission. Its clinical features, transmission mechanisms, and rate of spread are considerably different from COVID-19.” For this reason, Salud de México said that the new phase of the package of preventive interventions "incorporates the issuance of a second Epidemiological Notice of Monkeypox for all medical and public health units."

              In addition, he said that they present the clinical practice guidelines for standardized care and the automated call center will be enabled to guide people and facilitate access to care. While on the specific website for monkeypox various informational materials for health promotion will be presented, health personnel will be trained and awareness and risk management workshops will be held for key populations, among other measures.

              "The guidelines for epidemiological surveillance and laboratory diagnosis, in force since the beginning of the epidemic in May 2022, have guided the timely detection and confirmation of suspected cases," the agency said.

              The SSa recalled that the disease is transmitted by direct contact with infected animals such as monkeys and rodents; by exposure to secretions of an infected person through mucous membranes or skin lesions. Also, by eating undercooked meat and other animal products contaminated with the virus. Other known mechanisms include respiratory droplets and objects contaminated with the body fluids of the sick person.

              He specified that in Mexico monkeypox is not an endemic disease, so transmission is mainly through close contact (including sexual intercourse) with infected people during their period of contagion or through contaminated objects (clothes, bedding, towels). and others).

                                Monkeypox advances in Mexico: 252 cases in 20 entities
                                Mexico City, Jalisco and Yucatán are the states that lead the figures in terms of the number of infections in the country
                                August 17, 2022

                                The Ministry of Health (Ssa) reported that up to August 15, 252 cases of monkeypox were confirmed in the Mexican Republic. The infections are distributed in 20 states, of which Mexico City tops the list with 141.

                                Mexico City is followed by Jalisco with 46 and Yucatán with 15. The rest of the states where cases of monkeypox have been registered have less than 10, they are the following:

                                -State of Mexico and Quintana Roo with 9 each.

                                -Baja California, Chiapas, Nuevo León and Veracruz with 4 cases respectively.

                                -Tabasco with 3.

                                - Oaxaca, Puebla and Colima with 2 each.

                                -Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Michoacán, Morelos, Querétaro, San Luis Potosí and Sinaloa with one each.

                                In total, during this epidemiological week, 610 people presented the symptomatic picture of the disease, of which 131 are under study, 227 have been ruled out and 252 have been confirmed.

                                It is worth mentioning that the number of infections in this Weekly Technical Epidemiological Surveillance Report is considerably higher than that recorded in the previous one. Last week the Ssa reported 147 cases of monkeypox, that is, 106 more cases were added.

                                There was also a change in the geographical distribution of cases. Previously they were concentrated in 18 states, while in the most recent report mention was made of 20 states where infections have been registered.

                                Currently, males are the most affected by monkeypox, since 94% of infections are concentrated in men and 6% in women. Regarding the average age of the men who have been infected, the health authorities estimate that 45.6 percent are between 30 and 39 years old.

                                Globally, until August 12, 34,081 cases and 12 deaths were recorded, which are distributed in 92 countries.
                                What are the symptoms of monkeypox and how can it be prevented?

                                According to the website viruela.salud.gob.mx, the symptom picture of monkeypox consists of sudden fever, headache, exhaustion, muscle pain, swollen lymph nodes, profound weakness, and skin lesions, specifically blisters that may appear in any part of the body. It is worth mentioning that sometimes not all symptoms are present.

                                Regarding the way in which contagion can be prevented, the Ssa has emphasized the importance of avoiding close physical contact (including sexual contact) with people with monkeypox or who are probably infected and not touching objects that have touched sick people.
