According to the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD), no instances of monkeypox have been found in South Africa. Since the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed two cases in the United Kingdom on May 13, NICD experts have provided an update on the infectious disease. The disease is similar to smallpox but less severe, according to medical specialists.
The viral zoonotic disease is typically found in tropical rainforest areas of Central and West Africa, according to the WHO, although cases have lately been discovered in Europe, Australia, Canada, and the United States. The newest data on the monkeypox outbreak was supplied by Doctor Jacquiline Weyer of the Centre for Emerging Zoonotic and Parasitic Diseases.
"Our goal is to use case investigation and contact tracking to truly do effective surveillance." Cheryl Cohen, the head of the Centre for Respiratory Diseases and Meningitus, gave information about the recent recurrence of COVID-19 cases in South Africa, which is caused by the Omicron coronavirus strain. "The numbers have started to drop; there was a 27% drop in cases, and what's more encouraging is that these numbers are far lower than earlier waves."
