Monkeypox: profiles of infected people and why are there so many cases in Spain?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health officials continue to brace themselves in the face of predictions that infections will continue to rise, with monkeys already declared a public health emergency internationally, representing a more concern among citizens

A disease that evaluated 528 cases of people infected between April and June in 16 different countries, according to a study conducted by researchers at Queen Mary University of London. It has a certain profile, although, as experts point out, “everything can change”.,

“You can’t predict what’s going to happen in the near future. We are talking about a mild diseaseBut if appropriate measures are not taken, contacts of infected people are reported and a preventive confinement is carried out, the situation will not be favorable”, explains Juan Jose Badiola, director of the Center for Encephalopathies and Emerging Transmissible Diseases of the University of Zaragoza.

Data from the study published in ‘The New England Journal of Medicine’ – one of the most up-to-date and recent on the subject – show that 98% of patients declared themselves homosexual, bisexual or men who have sex with other men. Despite this, the General Nursing Council recalls that the “disease” can spread from person to person“.” This is something we can’t stop repeating.

The option of forcing the infected to remain in isolation could have been considered until the disease subsides or those specific pimples dry up,” insist the expert.

For Juan Jose Badiola, one of the reasons why Spain is the second country with the most infections is that, after the famous cases in the United Kingdom, “they began to become known here when the development of the disease in other places had not begun”. . also note that There were favorable conditions for the transmission of a disease that were not knownIn addition to the complex identification of contacts, because there are people who, because of the characteristics of the disease, prefer not to do this, there is something completely unsuitable if you want to eliminate transmission,” says Juan José Badiola.
