Israel reports first suspected monkeypox case

Israel reports first suspected monkeypox case

Tel Aviv, May 22 (Prensa Latina) A 30-year-old man is under observation at a hospital in Israel for having symptoms of monkeypox, which, if confirmed, would be the first case of that disease in the country.

The Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv informed that the citizen, who returned from Europe, is isolated, although he is in a good condition.

At least 11 countries, including the United States, Italy, Germany, Canada, Australia and Sweden, have reported cases of the disease.

World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge predicted this week that the spreading of the virus will accelerate during the summer season.

Native from West Africa, the disease is a viral infection transmitted from animals to humans, who once infected, suffer from fever, headache, muscle pain, chills and exhaustion.

The disease is known as monkeypox because it was discovered in apes in 1958. Since then, several outbreaks in humans have been reported in the African continent.
