A resident of Kamareddy has contracted Monkeypox.

The patient has been shifted to the isolation ward in the city's Fever Hospital, and is being treated.

Hospital superintendent Dr Shankar confirmed that the patient was exhibiting Monkeypox symptoms. He said that the hospital had collected five different types of samples from the patient and sent them to Pune-based Institute of Virology for confirmation of the presence of the virus.

Stating that the patient had come into contact with six persons, Dr Shankar said that his primary contacts had been identified and kept under isolation at Kamareddy.

He said that the patient had come to the State from Kuwait on July 6, and developed the symptoms of Monkeypox, like fever and skin rashes, three days after his arrival. The patient then visited a private hospital in Kamareddy, and was told that he was exhibiting the symptoms of Monkeypox.

Dr Shankar asked the people of the State not to worry about the virus, and said that only close contacts of Monkeypox patients were likely to contract the disease.

He said that the symptoms of the disease would be exhibited between six and 13 days, and urged the people to approach doctors if they developed any kind of symptoms.

He also asserted that the virus was not airborne.

Those who took vaccination for smallpox would get some immunity from the Monkeypox virus, he added.
