India's first monkeypox death in Kerala
A 22-year-old youth who reached Palakkad district of Kerala from a middle eastern country died on Sunday, suspected to be India's first monkeypox death.
The state health department has asked the district health officials to create a route map of his trip ever since he had landed in his hometown.
Sources in the health department told IANS that they were waiting for the report from the virology lab at Alappuzha to confirm the disease. If found positive, the swab samples would be sent to National Virology Lab, Pune for further testing. The state health minister's office will announce the result of the lab test.
