Paraguay´s MPOX cases continues to increase

Asuncion, Dec 8 (Prensa Latina) The monkeypox cases are slightly increasing every week in Paraguay, said the Health Surveillance Director Guillermo Sequera.

We are facing a silent epidemic and the numbers we are seeing are probably only “the tip of the iceberg”, said the doctor, who put the number of confirmed cases at 32 and pointed out that most of them are patients who have health problems.

Fortunately, he praised the fact that all cases detected to date have shown mild symptoms and have been managed on an outpatient basis.

However, he recalled, lesions almost always generate a lot of pain, for which reason consultation and controlled medication are quite necessary.

Paraguay´s Health Ministry reported first monkeypox patient past August.
