The collected samples have been sent to the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for further testing and confirmation of monkey flu, the health ministry said.
Monkeypox is a rare but serious viral disease that is spread from person to person through direct contact with body fluids or monkey sores. It is harder to transmit and easier to control than most contagious viruses like this Corona virus.
Monkey pox is rarely malignant and due to its resemblance to gonorrhea, gonorrhea infections can be treated with antiviral drugs and vaccines in stock. To prevent serious illness, vaccines may be given shortly after exposure.
The U.S. Department of Health says there are currently 25 cases of monkey flu in the United States.
