Israel announces first monkey trial – SABC News

Israel on Saturday reported the first case of the disease, which workers had expected.

The case involved a 30-year-old man who had just returned from a trip to western Europe, according to Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center – Ichilov, where he was isolated in a mild condition.

Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said a few hundred vaccines could be purchased, mainly for health workers treating patients who could prevent further infections. “This is not an infectious disease, there is no such thing as a coronavirus,” he told N12 News.

He did not give details about the vaccine but smallpox vaccine can also protect against the disease.

Monkeypox is an infectious disease that is usually mild and spreads to western parts of central Africa. It is spread through intimate relationships, which means it can be easily caught up in processes such as isolation and purity once new cases are discovered.

The recent outbreak in more than 10 other countries where it does not spread is rare, according to scientists. More than 100 acquisitions or suspects have been identified, most of them in Europe.
