Nine-month-old gets monkeypox in Ghana

Since the nation verified its first case on June 11 of this year, at least 18 cases of monkeypox have been reported in Ghana, according to the Ghana Health Service.

The Ashanti, Bono, Eastern, and Greater Accra Regions were where the instances were found.

Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, the director general of the Ghana Health Service, however, claimed in a media interview on Wednesday that no deaths related to the illness had been reported to date.

We currently have 72 cases of monkeypox, according to reports from around the world and what we discovered in Ghana.

18 of them have so far tested positive.

The final case occurred on June 14; the final lab result was released on that date.

So that’s where we stand in terms of monkeypox.

The disease’s age ranges from nine months to 41 years, and most cases have been found in Greater Accra, Ashanti, Bono, and Eastern Regions, according to Dr. Kuma-Aboagye. Case fatality rates are zero.
