The Nigerian Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has warned that there is no specific treatment for monkeypox following the outbreak in Europe and other countries.
The center also urged Nigerians to take some steps to avoid contracting the disease.
The NCDC message on its website reads, “There are no specific treatments available for monkeypox, although many new antivirals are in vitro and the supporting effects of animal data such as Brincindofocir and Tecovirimat.”
“Steps you can take to prevent infection with monkeypox include: avoid contact with endangered animals, either sick or dead animals, in areas where there are cases of monkeypox.” Please avoid contact with any material that has been in contact with an infected animal; Eat well any animal that may have been in contact with an infected animal; 30 and wash them with soap and water after contact with infected animals.
According to the World Health Organization, the disease is widespread in West and Central Africa.
Speaking in an interview with Punch, the Minister of Health, Dr. Olorunnimbe Mamora, said the NCDC was doing everything possible to improve the surveillance system to stop the spread of the disease.
“NCDC is on it. The company does everything in terms of surveillance and response and puts some measures to reduce the spread.”
“As we have Lassa fever, monkeypox is spreading all over Nigeria, but we have companies like NCDC in response to the response, and I can assure you they are on it completely,” the minister said.
In an exclusive interview with the publication, an astronomer at the University of Maiduguri, Professor Marycelin Baba, also confirmed that the NCDC was talking about it and urged him to be careful.
Dad said: “Monkeys are said to be a righteous change. There is no cure for the wind in its time. The only success is when a small vaccine is introduced. If you are lucky enough to get a small shot at your time, you may be a little safer.”
“Unfortunately, most people are not born when the world suffers from smallpox. Little has disappeared in the last ten years.”
“One of the problems we have in Nigeria, for example, is the lack of adequate diagnostic tools for diseases. How do you treat the problem if you can’t even diagnose the disease? I’m not sure if we still have smallpox vaccines globally, but as things stand, the only solution right now is the vaccine. Without vaccines, I’m sorry we did not go anywhere. “
