Plot World monkeypox outbreak
Methodological recommendations for organizing anti-epidemic measures in medical organizations in case of detection of monkeys infected with smallpox or persons with suspected disease were published by Rospotrebnadzor. They are presented on the agency’s website.
There are also recommendations for anti-epidemic measures aimed at preventing the emergence and spread of monkeypox.
The documents say that Rospotrebnadzor recommends strengthening measures to detect faces suspected of having monkeypox. It also talks about the need to check people who arrived from epidemically disadvantaged countries, to collect an epidemiological analysis of patients who applied to a medical facility with symptoms that do not exclude the presence of the disease.
The agency recommends isolating those who had contact with carriers of monkeypox. Self-isolation at home is also allowed. In both cases, the quarantine period should be 21 days based on a risk assessment depending on the degree of contact. If any symptoms of an infectious disease appear in people who are in isolation or in a medical facility, they are hospitalized in an infectious diseases hospital and the material is taken and examined.
The Rospotrebnadzor clarified that vaccination against smallpox has not been carried out in Russia since 1980 of the year. At present, it is also not provided for, since the presence of vaccination against smallpox provides protection against infection with monkeypox.
It was previously reported that Rospotrebnadzor will transfer tests for laboratory diagnosis of monkeypox to Turkmenistan.
