MANILA, Philippines – Umakyat ng 20% ang kaso ng monkeypox sa buong mundo.

Ito ay ayon sa World Health Organization (WHO) kung saan ayon kay WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus ay nasa 7,500 na bagong kaso ng monkeypox ang naitala noong nakaraang linggo.

Sumatutal ay umabot na sa 35,000 na kaso ng monkeypox ang naitala mula sa 92 na mga bansa.

“Almost all cases continue to be reported among men who have sex with men, underscoring the importance for all countries to design and deliver services and information tailored to these communities that protect health, human rights, and dignity,” ayon kay Ghebreyesus.

“The primary focus for all countries must be to ensure they are ready for monkeypox, and to stop transmission using effective public health tools, including enhanced disease surveillance, careful contact tracing, tailored risk communication and community engagement, and risk reduction measures,” dagdag pa niya.

Dito naman sa Pilipinas, nananatili sa isa ang kumpirmadong kaso ng monkeypox na naiulat noong Hulyo 29. RNT
