Brazilians Now Poisoning Monkeys Over Fears Of Monkeypox Outbreak



Brazilians Poisoning Monkeys Over Fears They’re To Blame For Monkeypox Outbreak

Brazilians have started poisoning monkeys over misplaced fears they are to blame for the growing monkeypox virus outbreak. At least 10 monkeys had been poisoned in less than a week in the city of Sao Jose do Rio

Preto, in Sao Paulo state, local reports said.

Similar incidents were reported in other cities, prompting the World Health Organisation on Tuesday to urge people not to k*ll the animals over the virus. ‘People have to know that the transmission we see now is among humans,’ said Margaret.

Harris, a WHO spokeswoman, during a press conference in Geneva. Brazil counts more than 1,700 cases of monkeypox,

according to the WHO. The country’s health ministry confirmed one death related to the disease on July 29 – a man who had low immunity and comorbidities.

Contagion can take place from animals to humans, but the recent outbreak is related to human only contacts, Harris said.
