    Horrible ‘Nigerian disease’ called Monkeypox spreads in the UK for the first time

    Horrible ‘Nigerian disease’ called Monkeypox spreads in the UK for the first time

    By Laura Cat 27 September 2018



    Monkeypox symptoms - Wikipedia

    In yet another stellar example of the ‘success’ of the UK’s slack border control, the UK now, for the first time ever, has the contagious disease spreading called Monkeypox. The third case now discovered is a healthcare worker in Blackpool, The Independent reports.
    The patient has been moved from Blackpool Victoria Hospital to Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary in order to be quarantined in isolation in the hopes of preventing the spread of the virus.
    The previous two cases of the disease were patients that had each travelled to Nigeria. The facility in the northeast treated the two patients that contracted the virus.

    Deputy Director at Public Health England (PHE) National Infection Service, Dr. Nick Phin, stated:
    “This healthcare worker cared for the patient before a diagnosis of Monkeypox was made. We have been actively monitoring contacts for 21 days after exposure to detect anyone presenting with an illness so that they can be assessed quickly. It is therefore not wholly unexpected that a case has been identified.”
    “This person has been isolated and we are taking a highly precautionary approach to ensure that all contacts are traced.”
    PHE has stated that they are taking a “highly precautionary approach” to the virus, which can be serious in rare cases, adding that it was monitoring closely anyone who has been in contact with an infected person.
    The first case in the UK ever was a Nigerian citizen and naval officer at a base in Cornwall. They are being treated at a specialist unit at Royal Free Hospital in London.
    PHE is working to trace people who shared their flight to the UK. The second case is a person in Blackpool who visited Nigeria.
    Nigeria had the largest outbreak of the disease ever seen in 2017. They, also, are being treated at Royal Free Hospital in London.
    About Monkeypox:
    The virus is spread through close contact and takes 16 days for symptoms to appear.
    Symptoms include fever, headaches and a rash that can form crusted blisters to appear.
    The disease is related to smallpox though much milder.
    It was first identified in humans in 1970 in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
    Historically it has been spread on the African continent through handling of infected monkeys.
    It is also thought that Gambian giant rats, squirrels and other rodents are the likely source.
    Deaths have been recorded, most commonly among the young
    The World Health Organisation reports that one in 10 cases are fatal – however their reports are predominantly countries with undeveloped health systems.
    Consumption of inadequately cooked meat from animals or rodents carrying the disease is another potential risk factor, according to the WHO.
    Any healthcare persons or staff who may have come into contact with any of the infected people should contact PHE for health advice.
