Kuwait City: In response to reports of monkey pox occurring in the UAE, the Ministry of Health issued technical guidelines. These recommendations are based upon the World Health Organization’s report about the possible outbreak of monkey fever in May, if confirmed cases are found in hospitals and health centers. The case investigation form should be completed by the Preventive Physician if the disease is suspected.
It is also important to ensure isolation. It is important to follow all instructions for preventing infection until the final laboratory results are available. Also, once an infection has been confirmed, procedures should be followed to treat it. To treat the patient, special isolation rooms are necessary. Instructions should be followed until the end of the isolation period, according to the circular.
