Enugu Government Dispels Monkey Pox Rumour Says 'No Outbreak In The State'

The Enugu State ‎Government on Tuesday dispelled rumour of a monkey pox case in the State. 

Yesterday,there was panic in the State following claims from unconfirmed sources that the victim has been taken to the ESUT Teaching Hospital, Parklane.

However, dismissing the reports, the Enugu State Commissioner for Health, Dr Fintan Ekochin, declared that “There is no outbreak of Monkey Pox in Enugu, not at all. Nothing has happened, the Enugu State Ministry of Health has a surveillance team distributed across the 17 local governments with a duty to look out for diseases and they are on duty every day. Since last year, since Ebola till today they have been on duty.

He advised the people not to panic about the disease, saying that it was like the Chicken Pox, pointing out that the two belong to one family of diseases.

It even affects adults at times, especially pregnant women because the immunity is lower. So, Chicken Pox is even a bigger disease to worry about than Monkey Pox”, he added.
