UAE reports 5 new monkeypox cases

The UAE announced five new cases of monkeypox in the country, the official Emirates news agency WAM reported citing the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) on Tuesday.

The report also said that two people recovered from the disease that the World Health Organization (WHO) called “self-limited with symptoms lasting from two to four weeks.”

The UAE introduced robust measures early on to prevent the spread of the zoonotic disease. Patients will reportedly undergo complete isolation in hospitals until they recover, and anyone who has come into contact with infected individuals will be quarantined at home for no less than 21 days.
