Don’t Panic among the people of monkeypox

Article

Currently, monkeypox, which has appeared again in the world, apart from the Covid-19 pandemic, is able to shake the human society due to dreadful symptoms such as a high temperature, aches and a rash of raised spots that later turn into blisters. But it is typically mild and for most people clears up within two to four weeks.
Moreover, the suspect patient will face their bodies with initial symptoms—fever, headaches, swellings, back pain and aching muscles. If so, they should take care of their health conditions by receiving proper medical treatment in time. The infection usually clears up on its own and lasts between 14 and 21 days.
Monkeypox is a rare viral infection most common in remote parts of central and West Africa. The disease, firstly found in monkeys, does not tend to spread easily between people but can be transmitted through close physical contact.
An item of international news stated that other people who may have come into contact with a case do not need to stay at home and isolate themselves but should watch out for symptoms such as fever and a rash.
The other day, the Ministry of Health held a coordination meeting on the possibility of monkeypox and how to prevent and monitor its infection in Myanmar. In this regard, it is necessary to raise the awareness of monkeypox disease through various ways and means while conducting preventive activities against the infection of chickenpox and smallpox.
Health officials warned the people of an outbreak of monkeypox in addition to chickenpox and smallpox in the country to make sure that the people should not panic as there is an outbreak of chickenpox among children in the country.
There is a need to intensify disease surveillance activities on existing communicable diseases as well as monkeypox although there is little evidence of the disease in Myanmar, and the preparations must be made for lab testing and medical work. But, Myanmar is less potential for an outbreak of monkeypox due to its nature, it is necessary to raise the surveillance and monitoring the infectious diseases with momentum for ensuring the safety of the people in the health sector.

Whatever it may be, not only relevant ministries and health officials but the entire people should not underestimate the infection of monkeypox, chickenpox and smallpox in the international community while making preparations for the current disease surveillance system in the nation with relentless efforts.
