Bolivia reports 61 recovered cases of monkeypox

La Paz, Sep 22 (Prensa Latina) The Bolivian Ministry of Health and Sports confirmed today that 61 patients have recovered from monkeypox, and put the number of active cases at 100 with the six positive cases detected yesterday.

The ministry’s press handout specifies that so far the number of infected patients in the country is 161.

By territory, the department of Santa Cruz registers the highest number of cases, with 146. Cochabamba reports 7 infected, La Paz 6, Potosí and Chuquisaca one, respectively.

Bolivian authorities report that so far no patient has died from this disease, which is under control with permanent surveillance of active and suspected cases.

Secondary or person-to-person transmission occurs through close contact with contaminated respiratory tract secretions or skin lesions of an infected person, or with objects recently contaminated with the patient’s fluids or lesion materials.

Bolivia reported the first case on August 1 of this year, and it was a 38-year-old traveler who arrived from abroad in Santa Cruz.
