Italy’s monkey pox cases rise to 20, set to rise further, deputy minister says – Times of India


MILAN: The number of monkey pox cases in Italy has risen to 20 and is set to rise further in the coming days, the country’s deputy health minister said on Wednesday.
“We have 20 cases in Italy, 19 are all people who have traveled where there has been a chain of contamination and maybe – this has not yet been confirmed – only one case has occurred as a second infection,” Pierpaolo Sileri told Rai Radio 1.
“There is an incubation period of a few weeks, it is clear that we will have more in the coming days,” he added.
More than 20 countries where monkeypox is not endemic have reported outbreaks of the viral disease, with more than 300 confirmed or suspected infections, mainly in Europe.
