Disease prevention and treatment

Those who jump from bed to bed please be careful of this new disease

Pictures of people with Monkey Pox which has been reported in 12 countries in Europe and America, a World Health Organization (WHO) expert and professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Dr David Heymann says cases are linked to sexual contact.

Monkey Pox has no cure at the moment.

“What seems to be happening now is that it has got into the population as a sexual form, as a genital form, and is being spread, as are sexually transmitted infections, which has amplified its transmission around the world,” Heyman said.

The virus comes from wild animals, including rodents and primates, but can occasionally transfer to humans people with severe cases can also develop rash and pus filled lesions on the face, palms of the hands and other body parts. The virus does not spread easily between people, though officials have said transmission can occur through contact with body fluids, monkeypox sores, items that have been contaminated with fluids or sores such as clothing and bedding, or through respiratory droplets following prolonged face-to-face contact. So those who jump from bed to bed, be carefulAt least these diseases are not breaking in Africa otherwise Africans were going to be imposed travel bans by now also wait for it to reach Africa, then we are going to be treated like it originated here in Africa. Anyway that is expected to happen from people who take monkey from forests and domesticate them as their pets, they claim that the disease is spread through sexual contact sounds familiar to that of aids which we were lied to that it originates from green monkeys
