Suspected monkeypox case reported in Noida
Health department officials said on Wednesday that a suspected case of monkeypox has been found in Noida. A 47-year-old woman approached the health department on Tuesday.
Monkeypox is a viral zoonosis (a virus transmitted to humans from animals) with symptoms similar to those seen in the past in smallpox patients, although it is clinically less severe. With the eradication of smallpox in 1980 and subsequent cessation of smallpox vaccination, monkeypox has emerged as the most important orthopoxvirus for public health.
