Following the discovery of the first possible case of Monkeypox in Indiana over the weekend, local health officials are encouraging the public to take measures. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) verified 110 cases of Monkeypox in several states as of Friday.
On Saturday, the Indiana Department of Health reported the discovery of the first likely case, although it did not specify where in the state it occurred. Due to privacy concerns, the patient’s information is being kept private. The good news about Monkeypox, according to Dr. Eric Yazel of the Clark County Health Department, is that it is not easily passed from person to person.
According to Yazel, practising basic hygiene habits like fully washing your hands, which were advocated during the COVID-19 epidemic, would also help you remain healthy. Monkeypox does not appear to cause serious sickness thus far. “Although you may be sick with flu-like symptoms and other symptoms, there have been no fatalities as a result of this outbreak. It’s a self-contained, light course “Yazel said.
