According to the official, the passenger’s sample has been forwarded to the Institute of Epidemiology Disease Control And Research (IEDCR). Infected people will be taken to the Infectious Diseases Hospital to be isolated.
Monkeypox is an uncommon disease that is similar to smallpox but is less severe, resulting in a spreading rash, fever, chills, and pains, among other symptoms.
Initially thought to be limited to western and central Africa, cases have been documented in Europe since May, with the number of nations afflicted increasing since then.
On Tuesday, a probable monkeypox patient was discovered at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (7 June). Monkeypox is not known to be a sexually transmitted illness, though its new spread may be linked to specific homosexual events in Europe. The greatest risk factor is close skin-to-skin contact with someone who has monkeypox lesions. ACAM2000 and JYNNEOS, which were initially designed for smallpox, are the only two vaccines now approved for monkeypox. The JYNNEOS vaccination is the newer of the two, with less adverse effects.
