Monkey Pox Outbreak: Avoid Eating Bushmeat — FG Warns

The Federal Ministry of Health has advised Nigerians to avoid eating monkeys, bushmeat and dead animals as doing so could open one to the risk of Monkey Pox disease.

A medical doctor and no fewer than 10 persons have reportedly been quarantined in Bayelsa as a result of the virus.

The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole said the disease neither had a cure nor a vaccine, noting, however, that there was no cause for alarm as it was mild.

The statement read in part, “He (Adewole) said the virus was mild and there was no known treatment and no preventive vaccines, hence the public should be at alert and avoid crowded places as much as possible.
