    Brazil reaches the milestone of 10,000 cases of monkeypox
    Correio Braziliense | 11/29/22 - 11:00 pm

    Brazil reached 10,000 cases of people infected with the monkeypox virus. The Ministry of Health updated the numbers this Monday (11/28). According to the disease monitoring panel carried out by the World Health Organization (WHO), Brazil is second only to the United States, which leads with 29,000 infections. Worldwide, 81,000 cases have been diagnosed so far.

    According to the folder, Brazil has 10,007 confirmed cases, in addition to 3,966 suspected cases and 13 deaths. Regarding the number of deaths, the country also lags behind the US, which detected 14 deaths from the monkeypox virus. In the country, deaths were registered in Maranhão (1), Mato Grosso (1), São Paulo (3), Minas Gerais (3) and Rio de Janeiro (5).

    The WHO said yesterday that it has started to adopt a new term as a synonym for monkeypox, "monkeypox". After receiving complaints that the current name of the disease is racist and stigmatizing, the institution urged everyone to follow suit.

    "Both names will be used concurrently for one year while 'monkeypox' is phased out," the global health organization said. A public consultation process to find a new name for the disease was launched earlier this year. During the period, several advisory bodies were consulted.

    The disease is called monkeypox because it was first identified in colonies of monkeys in 1958, being detected in humans only in 1970. However, the new worldwide outbreak has nothing to do with primates — all identified transmissions were attributed to contamination by person-to-person transmission.

    Until July 20, the Ministry of Health recorded 449 confirmed cases, but the balance presented by the ministry on Tuesday (23) shows that the country has 3,896 people infected with smallpox.

    Anvisa authorizes importation of medicines and vaccine without registrations in Brazil

    The National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) authorized last Friday (19) the importation of medicines and vaccines against monkeypox (monkeypox) without records in Brazil. The measure is exceptional and temporary.

    Anvisa emphasizes that it does not actually exempt registration, but establishes a method to authorize products to combat monkeypox more quickly. The entire management of the agency voted in favor of the measure.

    In practice, the measure allows the Ministry of Health to request the Agency to waive registration of drugs and vaccines that have already been approved by international agencies. The measure also simplifies the analysis of documents and facilitates the population's access to medicines and/or vaccines.

    It was also established that the Ministry of Health will be responsible for defining the vulnerable and priority groups for the use of the drug or vaccine, as well as promoting the monitoring of imported drugs or vaccines and managing the guidelines for reporting adverse events and technical complaints and the guidelines for health services. .

    The director-president of Anvisa, Antonio Barra Torres, declared that "the exemption from registration is a regulatory procedure, it is not to stop regulating, nor stop acting".

    The measure takes effect as soon as it is published in the Official Gazette, which should take place this Friday in an extra edition.
