The health ministry reported that Sao Paulo has 28 confirmed cases of the disease and when the two records of Rio Grande do Sul and those of Rio and Minas Gerais are added, Brazil reaches 37 cases.

Yesterday, the Secretariat of Rio de Janeiro confirmed the sixth case in the state. Now, there are five cases in the capital and one in the town of Marica, in Gran Rio.

Minas Gerais confirmed its first case, a 33-year-old man, who was in Europe between June 11 and 26. The Minas Gerais Health Secretariat indicates that it is an imported case.

Some medical literature states that monkeypox is a zoonotic disease: transmissible between animals and humans, with symptoms such as fever, headache and muscle pain.

It also causes swollen lymph nodes, chills, exhaustion, as well as rashes on hands and face, similar to those produced by traditional smallpox, although less severe.
