They also developed rashes on the face and other parts of their body which prompted the suspicion of monkeypox.“In the light of the above scenarios, I hereby declare the outbreak of Monkeypox in Gombe state.“The disease can be transmitted from an infected animal to human beings through direct contact or body fluid and waste product of infected animal.“Also, human to human transmission occurs directly through contact with body fluids of an infected person or indirectly through contact with surfaces contaminated by a patient.”  The post Gombe government declares monkeypox outbreak appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
