UAE records 3 new cases of monkeypox

Three new cases of monkeypox have been reported in the UAE.

The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) urged the community to take proper precautions and preventative measures while traveling and to avoid dangerous behaviors.

The ministry also reminded the citizens that monkeypox can be “transmitted to humans through close contact with an infected person or animal, including bodily fluids, respiratory droplets, or with material contaminated with the virus.”

On May 24, the UAE announced its first case of monkeypox. The authorities detected the disease in a 29-year-old West African traveler.

The ministry assured that they are actively working with other health authorities to develop an epidemiological surveillance system for the safety of the people. BKM/ Expat Media
