EXPERIENCE: BREAKING News
Cases of monkey disease are rare abroad in central and western Africa.
One case of monkeypox virus was confirmed Tuesday in a Maryland citizen who recently returned from Nigeria.
Health officials in Maryland say they have few symptoms, are recovering individually and have not been hospitalized.
MDH said Monkeypox belongs to the same group of viruses as smallpox but usually causes fewer infections. It can spread from person to person through direct contact with skin or body fluids, or contaminated items such as clothing or clothing. They can also spread through large respiratory dots that are often unable to move more than a few feet, and long eye contact is essential.Download file now!

MDH said the disease is caused by symptoms of the flu and inflammation of the lymph nodes, which extend to the face and body. Most illnesses last two to four weeks. People who have been identified as being at risk should be monitored for 21 days after being diagnosed with the condition of monkeys, MDH said.
