Minister Koca Reiterates No Risk of Pandemic
The monkeypox virus, which was first detected in our country on June 30, was found in a 37-year-old citizen with an inadequate immune system. Minister Koca’s statement is as follows:
“5 cases of monkeypox have been detected in our country. 4 patients have recovered, one is under treatment. They are in good health, there is no problem. The main reason why it is not seen frequently in our country is that it is transmitted by close and long-term contact in a closed environment. It is an endemic for our country or an endemic situation globally. It does not carry a pandemic risk. The disease is transmitted by close contact, there is no pandemic risk.”
Another important development regarding the monkeypox was that it caused the death of a person for the first time. The death news from Peru was first followed by Nigeria, Brazil, Spain, India and Ghana.
