The health system reports 18 confirmed cases of monkeypox, which already have a landfill. In addition, 46 cases under analysis have already been ruled out.
Daniel Díaz, Guanajuato’s health secretary, said each of the cases was being closely monitored and were in good condition with no major complications.
The head of health indicated that close collaboration is maintained with the Institute for Epidemiological and Reference Diagnosis (InDRE) for the notification of suspected cases and the sending of tests.
There is also the tracking of travel history in an epidemiological surveillance that allows us to isolate suspected cases.
The municipalities that presented cases are: Acámbaro, Celaya, Capital, Irapuato, Jerécuaro, León, Pénjamo, Purísima, Salamanca, Salvatierra, San Francisco, San José Iturbide, Silao and Valle de Santiago.
Guanajuato’s health system has a certain epidemiological surveillance and intelligence unit with coverage in all 46 municipalities to collect samples from people who meet the operational definitions for the detection of monkeypox: rashes, sore throats, head , fever, swollen glands and muscle aches with fatigue.
Monkeypox is a disease that is transmitted through skin-to-skin contact. Therefore, healthcare personnel are trained to take samples of skin lesions and identify signs and symptoms in a timely manner.
Treatment of infected persons should be done at home; isolated under close surveillance, however, there is hospital capacity in the health system to care for them in the event of a complication.
