Smallpox of monkeys, Bassetti: “Stopping the outbreak in the EU”

-

“There is no specific cure, generally these forms are self-limited, have a duration and then resolve themselves” “I said that we will have had cases of monkeypox in Italy, Spain and Portugal are just around the corner. Now it’s a European and global problem, we must do very well the tracing and make sure that an outbreak that has started is stopped “. Matteo Bassetti, director of Infectious Diseases of the San Martino Polyclinic in Genoa, underlines this to Adnkronos Salute, commenting on the first Italian case of monkeypox isolated at Spallanzani in Rome. “One good thing is that anyone who is vaccinated for smallpox should be covered, but this vaccination from 1974 onwards hasn’t been done. A major part of the population does not have the smallpox vaccine and could be discovered,” he warns. “There is no specific cure for smallpox, in general these forms are self-limited, have a duration and then resolve themselves. The risks – explains Bassetti – are those of an intra-human infection, or that there may be transmission to more people if it comes out of these clusters that we have had especially among homosexual people, and it can become a problem “.
