Monkeypox vaccine in India, Stay away from infected people Revealed by Britain‌ Health Care Agency. Smallpox vaccine given to people with monkey pox

The British Health Service released a health bulletin recommended that those who come in close contact with a person infected with monkeypox be kept in isolation for 21 days. 

Those who have been in close contact with the monkeypox patient at home or outside should inform the relevant authorities of where and when they have met someone. 

The agency advised such people not to go outside for 21 days and not to go near the elderly, the chronically ill, pregnant women and children under 12 years of age. 

The disease is found in monkeys in central and western Africa and has since spread to Europe and Britain. There were 20 cases of monkeypox in Britain, 80 in Europe, the United States, Canada, Israel and Australia. 

The virus, which is found mainly in monkeys, is not easily transmitted to humans. The disease spreads quickly to those who go closest to the victims. 

It can also be transmitted through sexual activity. Dr. David Hyman, a World Health Organization consultant, believes that monkeypox may have been transmitted from one person to another by gay and bisexual men who recently attended two rave parties in Spain and Belgium. 

Even in Britain, the vast majority of cases found so far have been found in homosexuals. Having sex with such people, changing their blankets without PPE suits, or going near others can infect Monkeypox.

Monkeypox symptoms and causes

Symptoms of monkeypox include high fever, sore throat, and blisters on the skin. The disease has only mild symptoms in adults. 

The severity is higher in children. The general population has a lower risk of contracting the disease.

However, Suzanne Hopkins, chief executive of Britain's health care agency, advised that everyone should be vigilant. Dr. Hyman said that monkeypox was not like a cow, that it did not spread through the air, and that we had vaccines against it.

Protection with smallpox vaccine (Monkeypox vaccine in India)

Smallpox vaccine is given to people who have been exposed to monkey pox. They are protected against monkeypox by being vaccinated within four to six days of the onset of symptoms. 

Suzanne Hopkins, head of Britain's health care agency, says smallpox is not currently being vaccinated across the population. Many countries have begun stockpiling smallpox vaccines as they provide 85 percent protection against monkeypox.
