Four deaths and 116 confirmed cases of the Monkeypox disease in 2022, in 14 out of the 16 regions recorded in Ghana, according to reports.
“Monkeypox could affect anyone despite the age, disclosing that a 13-day-old baby got infected and died,” according to Dr Abudulai.
However, more than half of the confirmed cases were aged between 16 and 39 years.
Dr Abdulai mentioned the symptoms to include acute fever with a body temperature of more than 38 degrees Celsius, coughing, cold, backache, sore throat, weakness, and rashes.
“Therefore, seek immediate medical attention anytime you experience these symptoms,” he said.
