The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) published an alert yesterday on the UK.Gov website confirming a single identified case of Monkey Pox in England.

The case patient had recently travelled from Nigeria and is believed to have been infected before entering the UK.

The Agency reported that the patient is receiving care at the Guy’s and St Thomas NHS Foundations Trusts’ expert infectious diseases unit in London.

Dr Nicholas Price, Director of NHSE High Consequence Infection Diseases (airborne) Network and Consultant in Infectious Diseases at Guy’s and St Thomas said,

“The patient is being treated in our specialist isolation unit at St Thomas Hospital by expert clinical staff with strict infection prevention procedures. This is a good example of the way that the High Consequence Infectious Diseases national network and UKHSA work closely together in responding swiftly and effectively to these sporadic cases.”

While the Agency considers the ‘overall risk’ to the general public to be very low, passengers who travelled with or came in close proximity to the patient will be contacted by the Agency as a precautionary measure.

The UKHSA said those without symptoms are not considered infectious but should be treated immediately if they become ill.

The agency outlines the initial symptoms of the virus which include fever, headache, muscle aches, backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills, and exhaustion. A rash can develop, often beginning on the face then spreading to other parts of the body. The rash changes and goes through different stages before finally forming a scab, which later falls off.

Monkeypox is a rare and usually mild infection that does not spread easily between people. While some who contract the virus can suffer from severe illness, most people recover within a few weeks.
