Belgium announces 21-day isolation upon virus outbreak

(MENAFN) Belgium’s Risk Assessment Group has publicized a 21-day isolation for cases diagnosed with monkeypox following three individuals in the nation were also having the same virus, which has appeared in more than 12 nations in the previous week. The medical health authority announced it two days ago.

Marc Van Ranst, a virologist, announced on social media platform that there is a fourth case found diagnosed with monkeypox. He stated that like the earlier three cases, the person in question was linked to the global homosexual festival Darklands, which was in the beginning of this month in Antwerp.

The doctor stated, “It is important that everyone who attended the Darklands Festival remains vigilant for any symptoms,” signifying the scale of the outburst was getting “clearer and clearer” as declaring “this is unheard of before with monkeypox viruses.” The virus, which does not have a treatment yet, however, resolves spontaneously within few weeks.
