The Government of Turkey confirmed this Thursday the detection of the first case of monkeypox in the country and stressed that the patient “is in isolation”, before highlighting that contact tracing has ruled out more infections.

“Simian pox has been detected in a patient. The patient is 37 years old and has immunodeficiency,” Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said in a brief message posted on his Twitter account.

“A contact tracing has been carried out and no other cases have been found. As far as we know, the disease is not transmitted by the respiratory route, but by close physical contact,” he said.


The World Health Organization (WHO) ruled out on Saturday that the outbreaks of monkeypox detected in several Western countries constitute an international emergency.
