Unang kaso ng human-to-dog transmission ng monkeypox, naitala
In this file photo taken on January 07, 2011 this handout photo provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was taken in 1997 during an investigation into an outbreak of monkeypox, which took place in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and depicts the dorsal surfaces of a monkeypox case in a patient who was displaying the appearance of the characteristic rash during its recuperative stage. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said June 3, 2022 it was aware of more than 700 global cases of monkeypox, including 21 in the United States, with investigations now suggesting it is spreading inside the country.

MANILA, Philippines — “Dobleng pag-iingat sa monkeypox virus”. Ito ang muling pag-abiso ng World Health Organization (WHO) ma­karaang maitala ang unang kaso ng ‘human-to-dog transmission’.

Ang kaso ay sa pagitan ng dalawang lalaki at ng kanilang Italian greyhound, sa Paris, France.

Ayon kay Rosamund Lewis, technical lead for monkeypox ng WHO, may mga pag-aaral na rin ang mga eksperto sa posibilidad ng paglilipat ng virus sa mga hayop kaya’t pinapayuhan nila ang mga nagpopositibo sa sakit na iwasang lumapit sa kanilang mga alaga.

Mahalaga rin umano ang ‘waste ma­nagement’ upang maibaba ang panganib ng kontaminasyon ng mga daga o iba pang hayop.

Aminado rin si Lewis na may mga posibilidad ng mutation ng virus sa pag­tuloy na paglilipat-lipat nito.

Sa datos, mahigit 35,000 na ang kaso ng monkeypox ngayong taon sa 92 coun­tries kung saan 12 ang nasawi.
