Record more MonkeyPox Cases in International Passengers in Pakistan.

Pakistan has detected more monkeypox cases in individuals who recently traveled from the UAE to the country.

The passengers arrived in Karachi on two flights on April 26 and displayed symptoms of the infectious disease. According to Director of Border and Health Services,

Dr Ghulam Murtaza Shah, all three patients have been shifted to an isolation center. The health authorities are conducting tests to confirm whether these individuals have contracted the monkeypox virus.

The recent suspected cases of monkeypox come after two cases of the viral disease were detected in individuals who had returned from Saudi Arabia. Both were Rawalpindi and Islamabad residents who were quarantined upon their arrival in Pakistan.

Monkeypox is a zoonotic disease that can be transmitted to humans from animals.

Symptoms include,

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Backaches
  • Swollen
  • Lymph nodes

A rash then develops, often beginning on the face and spreading to other body parts. The disease is typically self-limiting, meaning it resolves independently within a few weeks, but severe cases can result in complications such as pneumonia, sepsis, and encephalitis.

According to the WHO, the risk of monkeypox spreading from person to person is low. But it can occur through close contact with infected individuals or contaminated objects.
