In Texas, America, a person infected with ‘monkeypox’ has been found. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has given this information on Friday. Such a case of ‘monkeypox’ has come to the fore for the first time. This viral disease has been found in an American resident, who recently visited Nigeria. The person has been admitted to the hospital. For the first time in 20 years, such a case has come to the fore.
Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said, “While this case is rare, it will not spread to many people. We do not see any danger to the common people from this disease as of now. In addition to Nigeria, outbreaks of the disease were seen in Central and West African countries in the 1970s. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, monkeypox was seen in America in 2003. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention said that it is working with airline, state, and local health authorities to trace passengers and others who may have come in contact with the patient.
