And now in Ireland. Monkey pox was first confirmed in the eastern part of the country. In France, meanwhile, the first risk contact cases were vaccinated.

Dublin (AP) – Monkey pox has been confirmed for the first time in Ireland. The Irish Health Authority said on Friday evening that there was a case in the eastern part of the country.



The person concerned, who did not disclose further details, has not yet sought treatment at the hospital. You must notify your contacts. There is also a suspicious case in Ireland. This is not unexpected after the outbreak of monkey pox in the UK and many other European countries, the statement said.

In France, meanwhile, two people who came in contact with monkeypox victims were vaccinated against the virus. The German press agency learned from the Directorate General of Health on Saturday that the smallpox vaccine Imvanex had been given to both men at a hospital in Paris on Friday. Vaccination was recommended by the leading French health authority after dangerous contact.

In the middle of the week, French Health Minister Brigitte Burgundy spoke about seven confirmed cases of monkeypox in France. The situation is manageable. Individuals in contact have adequate vaccines.

In Great Britain, significantly more infections with the virus have been reported, and more than 1000 contacts have already been vaccinated. The country bought more than 20,000 doses of Imvanex. No vaccinations are known in Germany, but “up to 40,000 doses” have been ordered.
