The suspected patient displayed symptoms akin to monkeypox infection, following which the authorities were informed. The patient, however, had been unwell for more than three weeks and the symptoms were wearing off at the time of diagnosis, said officials. As a precautionary measure, the samples were sent for testing.
The officials have appealed to citizens to inform medical authorities in case of persisting monkeypox symptoms. A separate helpline number has also been launched for monkeypox-related information. The follow-up protocol will be issued by the health department after the results are obtained.
