        Monkeypox in Colombia: What is the reality of the situation?
        September 19, 2022 - 08:25 AM m. By: Colprensa

        The global outbreak of monkeypox, better known as monkeypox, has caused 1,260 infections in Colombia, with a very low rate of infection and mortality compared to other viruses such as covid-19, for which the National Government and experts they gave a part of tranquility to the citizenship.

        For six months, when the new outbreak began worldwide, it was said that this virus had nothing to do with covid, in terms of speed of contagion, much less lethality.

        But, two weeks ago, a report from the World Health Organization (WHO) classified Colombia as one of the ten countries most affected by the outbreak and some social organizations expressed concern about the increase in cases in sectors of the population. who have more risky practices, such as homosexual men or those with multiple sexual partners.

        This led the Minister of Health, Carolina Corcho, to issue a diagnosis of the current situation in the country. "I must give part of calm for the decrease in cases of monkeypox in Colombia in the last week," she said this Friday, September 16.

        In Colombia, of the 1,260 people confirmed with the infection, at least 40 have been hospitalized and none have died. Of all the reported cases, a total of 1,250 are men and 10 are women.

        Doctors have seen that the most affected are men between the ages of 20 and 39, most of whom (62.4%) are unaware of the source of infection, according to data from the National Institute of Health (INS), with a cutoff of 12 June. September.


        In reality, there is no disease in Colombia that should generate an alarm in public health because three people get sick every day in a country of more than 50 million inhabitants, and even more so, if no one has died from it, says the renowned doctor in epidemiology Jaime Ordóñez.

        According to the most recent WHO report, some 57,000 people around the world have been infected with monkeypox and 22 people have died from this cause, that is, on average one death every eight days around the world.

        Thus, the risk of death from the current global monkeypox outbreak is 0.04% and, according to Ordóñez, about ten times lower than that of dying from Covid, even lower than the risk of dying from the common cold, which fluctuates between 0.05% and 0.1%.

        "We are talking about a disease with an extremely low risk of infection and a much lower probability of dying," explained the epidemiologist. "This must be the disease that has generated fewer deaths worldwide in the last semester."

        Added to that, international analyzes revealed this week that the mortality rate from the current global monkeypox outbreak is lower than expected, hovering around 0.04%, that's significantly less than the 1-3% that has been reported. reported during outbreaks caused by a similar viral strain in West Africa over the last few decades, concludes a September 13 article in the journal Nature, considered by experts to be the world's leading health journal.

        However, it is important to note that scientists are still trying to understand all the transmission dynamics of the virus. Six months into the new global outbreak, scientists are still learning about the behavior of monkeypox.
