          MONKEYPOX

          You can get monkeypox through close physical contact with someone who has symptoms. The rash, body fluids (such as fluid, pus, or blood from skin lesions), and scabs are especially infectious. Clothing, bedding, towels, or objects such as eating utensils or dishes that have been contaminated with the virus from contact with an infected person can also infect other people.

          Ulcers, lesions, or sores in the mouth can also be infectious, meaning the virus can be spread through saliva. People who interact closely with someone infected, such as healthcare workers, family members and sexual partners, are therefore at higher risk of infection.

          It is important to note that people with monkeypox are infectious as long as they have symptoms (usually two to four weeks).

          How is a suspected case defined?

          This is any person, of any age, with an unexplained acute skin or mucosal rash that progresses from the face with extension to the rest of the body and who presents one or more of the following signs or symptoms, concurrent or immediately:

          • Pain headache
          • Acute onset fever above 38.5 °C
          • Swollen glands
          • Muscle pain
          • Fatigue or weakness

          In case of doubt, you can call the Call Center at 33-3823-3220 orEpidemiological and Sanitary Intelligence Unit (UIES) of the Jalisco Ministry of Health at 33-3030-5000 ext. 35059 and 35072.

                Jalisco already has 5 cases of monkeypox; four are foreigners
                Of this total, only one patient remains in the Civil Hospital of Guadalajara, who could be discharged this Saturday
                June 17, 2022

                The Jalisco Health Secretariat (SSJ) confirmed on the afternoon of this Friday, June 17, that there are already five cases of monkey or monkeypox in the state.

                At a press conference, Dr. Fernando Petersen, head of the SSJ, explained that in the last hours four more infections were added after notification by the Institute of Epidemiological Diagnosis and Reference (InDRE).

                Two of them are related to the foreign patient who went to Puerto Vallarta and then fled to Texas, United States, after refusing isolation.

                For this reason, he mentioned that prevention actions on this disease have focused on the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area and on the beach destination:

                “These are cases that are generally associated with international cases, so from an epidemiological perspective we have focused our attention on the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area and Puerto Vallarta, places where international airports and ports are located”

                And it is that of the total, four are foreigners and only one is Mexican; In addition to the age of those infected, it ranges between 38 and 54 years.

                However, of the four new cases, only one remains in the Civil Hospital of Guadalajara (HCG), who could be discharged next Saturday, June 18.

                In this regard, Dr. Jaime Andrade Villanueva, director of the HCG, commented that said patient was kept under hospital observation upon arrival with a widespread picture of skin lesions with fever.

                “We hospitalized him because initially we thought he had chickenpox, he is a person who has a history of a disease for which he receives an immunosuppressant and we thought he had disseminated chickenpox. He called our attention to two things, he had a very slight fever and no significant allopathies in his neck”.

                During the remote conference, two cases that had been considered suspicious were ruled out, including that of a 28-year-old woman, originally from Zapopan.

                At the moment, health authorities have followed up on 44 people who may have had some contact with the first case of monkeypox detected in Puerto Vallarta and there are 18 people who have sought medical attention or requested information...

                ...On June 14, Dr. Hugo López-Gatell, Undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, reported that up to that time five cases of monkeypox had been detected in the country, of which four were reported in the city. of Mexico and that of Jalisco.

                In this sense, now there are already 9 infected in total in Mexico. Given the growing doubt about the behavior of this disease, the doctor rejected the possibility that monkeypox could become a pandemic.

                According to López-Gatell, “the most likely” is that more cases will continue to be registered “sporadically” and eventually some outbreaks; however, he denied that there are signs that it could turn into a pandemic like COVID-19

                            There are 35 cases of monkeypox in Mexico: PAHO
                            07/13/2022

                            The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) reported that to date 25 cases of monkeypox, known as "monkeypox", have been detected in Mexico. At a press conference, the Incident Manager for Covid-19 in America, Sylvain Aldighieri, specified that the entity with the highest number of cases detected is Mexico City, with 22 infections.

                            Jalisco is in second position with 9 cases, while the states of Veracruz, Colima, Nuevo Léon and Baja California each have one registered case. The PAHO official explained that 94% of those infected are men, of whom 60% have HIV. In addition, the most affected population group is between 30 and 49 years of age.

                            Aldighieri pointed out that no deaths from the disease have been reported, but expressed his concern about the high number of infections without travel history. “In many countries in the region where we have well-characterized data, the proportion of cases with no travel history is increasing every epidemiological week, highlighting our concern about establishing more sustained transmission,” he said.

                            Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned that three thousand infections were reported globally in recent days, so the number of cases currently amounts to 9,200 in 63 countries. To date, 3 deaths have been reported from this disease.

                              Sinaloa detected its first case of monkeypox; there are already 36 in Mexico

                              This is a man who recently traveled to Mexico City and Jalisco, the states with the most cases of the disease in the country.

                              The head of the Sinaloa Ministry of Health, Dr. Cuitláhuac González, reported this Saturday afternoon that the first case of monkey or monkeypox in the state was detected.

                              At a press conference, the official explained that it is a man who recently traveled to Mexico City and Guadalajara, Jalisco, the two states with the most cases of this disease.

                              It is worth mentioning that he remains in a stable condition, but in home isolation and under close medical surveillance.

                              The report submitted by the Epidemiology Subdirectorate specified that the infected person returned to the city of Culiacán on July 3, but the first symptoms did not appear until the 11th of that month.

                              He immediately went to the medical service, where the corresponding samples were taken and analyzed at the State Public Health Laboratory, but it was not until this weekend that the disease was confirmed.

                              Dr. González Galindo called on people who have been in contact with suspected monkeypox patients to go immediately to the nearest health sector units, since the first symptoms appear between seven and ten days later. and if their contagion is confirmed, they must remain incommunicado for 21 days.

                              He explained that this illness is not fatal, since data from the World Health Organization (WHO) state that only between 3 and 6% of patients who die are those with immunocompromised conditions such as HIV or degenerative chronic.

                              For its part, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) reported on July 13 that at least 35 confirmed cases of monkeypox had been found in Mexico, plus this Saturday.
