Health professionals working at a public health laboratory in the Democratic Republic of Congo are facing an outbreak of a new respiratory virus that has been contracted from monkeys. This new respiratory virus, named “monkeypox” is caused by the monkeypox virus and can infect people through contact with infected animals or body fluids.
What is a Monkeypox?
Monkeypox is a deadly virus that can be spread through contact with the saliva, mucus, or blood of an infected person. There is no specific treatment for monkeypox, but it can be fatal in up to 80% of cases. Since the disease is highly contagious and there is no vaccine available, it is important to take steps to protect yourself from becoming infected.
Tips for protecting yourself from monkeypox
Monkeypox is a serious viral illness that is caused by the monkeypox virus. It can cause severe symptoms including fever, rash, and pneumonia. There is currently no cure for monkeypox, so prevention is key. Here are some tips to protect yourself from monkeypox:
-Wash your hands regularly with soap and water.
-Avoid close contact with animals who are sick or have been exposed to monkeypox.
-Stay away from areas where there is a risk of exposure to monkeypox.
-Tell your doctor if you have any symptoms of monkeypox, including fever, rash, or pneumonia.
One of the most important tips to protect yourself is to get a clear diagnosis. Sansure Monkeypox PCR Kits can help you diagnose whether you have monkeypox. Based on its accuracy and sensitivity, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test can detect monkeypox DNA in tissue. The kit can detect up to 8 minutes on the iPonatic and up to 96 samples in 30 minutes on a conventional PCR instrument.
As the World Health Organization warns, an outbreak of monkeypox is a scary thing. So what can you do to protect yourself? It is important to remember that the most important thing is to stay away from relevant places where cases have occurred. If you find that you may be infected, please seek formal testing, such as Sansure Monkeypox PCR Kits, to confirm whether you are sick and take measures to protect yourself.
