New Program Release - Monkeypox
What is Monkeypox?
Monkeypox is a rare disease that is caused by the Monkeypox virus. It is a member of the orthopoxvirus family, same as the virus that causes smallpox. There are two known types of monkeypox – one that originated in Central Africa and one that originated in West Africa. Monkeypox is spread when a person comes in contact with an animal or person infected with the virus. Transmission from animal to person occurs through skin lesions or direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected animal. While less common, monkeypox can also be spread from person to person. This occurs through direct contact with sores, scabs, and oral fluids of an infected person.
What are the Symptoms?
Once a person has been exposed to the virus, it can take several days to a few weeks before any symptoms develop. The early signs are like those of the flu including fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes, etc. After a few days, it is common for a rash to develop. The rash starts off as painful red bumps which can later turn into pus filled blisters. Sores in your mouth and genitals are also common. The blisters will eventually crust over and fall off, the whole process lasting anywhere from two to four weeks.
With the most current outbreak, many cases are not following the usual symptom pattern. Current symptoms include only a few lesions, less of a fever, the absence of swollen lymph nodes, and other signs of illness. Even if you are not showing symptoms of infection, you can still spread monkeypox to others through prolonged contact with another individual.
How to Prevent Monkeypox
There is a vaccine to protect against Monkeypox, however it is currently only limited to clinical trials. Currently, the best ways to prevent the spread of monkeypox is to:
- Avoid contact with infected animals
- Avoid contact with bedding and other materials contaminated with the virus
- Thoroughly cook all foods that contain animal meats
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water
- Avoid contact with people who may be infected with the virus
- Wear a mast that covers your nose and mouth when in the presence of others
- Clean and disinfect commonly used surfaces
- Use protective equipment when caring for those infected with the virus
