                    Brazil has 17 confirmed cases of monkeypox
                    By Redaction The South | June 26, 2022

                    Brazil has recorded 17 confirmed cases of monkeypox, with 11 in São Paulo, 2 in Rio Grande do Sul and 4 in Rio de Janeiro, according to data released by the Ministry of Health on Friday (24.jun.2022). Another 10 cases are still under investigation. Of the total number of infections, 5 would be autochthonous, that is, of local transmission of the disease. Two of them in Rio de Janeiro and 3 in São Paulo.

                    Only at the end of the last week, three new cases of the disease were reported, two in the State of Rio de Janeiro and another in the State of São Paulo. The infections were confirmed by the laboratories of Fiocruz (Fundação Oswaldo Cruz) in Rio and the Instituto Adolf Lutz in São Paulo. The new case identified in São Paulo was imported. The patient has a recent travel history to Europe, is male, is 29 years old and lives in São Paulo.

                    According to information from the Ministry of Health, all patients present a stable clinical picture, without complications, and are being monitored by the Health Departments of the states and municipalities.

                    autochthonous cases

                    The Ministry of Health was also notified of three autochthonous cases of monkeypox in the State of São Paulo. There are three male patients, living in the capital of São Paulo, aged between 24 and 37 years. They have no travel history to countries with confirmed cases. According to the folder, the infections are under investigation to search for transmission links. The patients are isolated, with a stable clinical condition, without complications and being monitored by the local Health Departments.

                    Monkeypox is spread through close contact. Infection can be via the respiratory tract, but prolonged close face-to-face contact is required. The first case of monkeypox was recorded in Brazil on June 8, in São Paulo, in a 41-year-old man who traveled to Spain and Portugal.

                    46 suspected cases have already been ruled out in Brazil. As of June 24, 2022, 3,685 cases of the disease have been confirmed in 45 countries. Confirmed cases are mainly distributed in Europe, which concentrates the largest number of notifications.

                    Experts say that the chances of monkeypox becoming a pandemic are slim because of the low transmission capacity of the virus. However, they say it is important to remain vigilant, with effective screening and diagnosis methods. The World Health Organization (WHO) also asked countries to be vigilant and transparent in the face of the outbreak.
