Monkey pox appeared in Poland. On June 10, the infection was confirmed in the first patient currently admitted to hospital.

The Minister of Health, Adam Nidzelsky, said that the first confirmed case of monkeypox had been reported in Poland.

A confirmed patient was hospitalized and isolated.

The National Institute of Hygiene, the National Institute of Public Health, has informed me that we have the first confirmed case. Since there were about 10 such uncertainties, samples were examined – Niedzielski said during the press conference.

So, June 10 is the first day we have the first case – added.

According to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, by June 8, 704 confirmed cases of monkeypox had been reported in eighteen countries in the European Union and 473 confirmed cases in ten countries outside the European Union. These are the countries where the monkey is not usually found – it is found in some African countries.

Like Covid-19, it is a zoonotic virus.

The largest number of cases so far have been recorded in the United Kingdom (321), Spain (198), Portugal (191), Germany (113), Canada (81) and France (66).

So far, no deaths have been reported in these countries, says Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, head of the World Health Organization:
