Big concern in Morocco. This Monday, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection announced the registration of 3 suspected cases of monkey pox better known as monkeypox.
The ministry specified that these three cases are in good health, under health care and monitoring, and have been the subject of medical analyzes pending results.
After a first case in the United States, monkeypox infections have been reported in several other Western countries. However, this virus was so far limited to tropical rainforest areas of West and Central African countries, with few cases occasionally exported abroad.
Cases have been detected in the UK, Portugal, Italy, Sweden, France, Belgium, Germany, and Canada. The latest suspected case was found in Israel in a man who recently returned to the country from Western Europe.
