In Spain have been reported until this Tuesday 132 positive cases of monkeypox12 more cases than those reported this Monday by the laboratory of the National Center for Microbiology (CNM) of the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII).
It is still a mystery how this disease will evolve in next weeks. but the doctor Cesar Carballoattached to the emergency department of the Ramón y Cajal University Hospital, has ventured to make some predictions for the next few days.
In an interview on ‘El Programa de Ana Rosa’, Carballo stated that it is likely “in the coming weeks we will see more cases” although he has recalled that the transmission of this disease “it’s not like covid”.
Likewise, the deputy has underlined the need to cut the chains of contagionand for this it asks for “isolates effective for two to three weeks, until those scabs” that cause monkeypox dry up.
However, Carballo acknowledges the difficulty of complying with quarantines: “Telling patients to isolate is easy on paper. How does one isolate oneself for 15-21 days, and more with this disease so stigmatized? It is necessary to facilitate procedures and have the support of home hospitalization”, he posted on his official Twitter account.
