The Ministry of Health offers 6 principles of prevention and control of infection in the Guidelines for prevention of monkeypox infection at medical examination and treatment establishments.
According to the Ministry of Health, as of August 21, our country has not recorded cases of monkey smallpox.
However, with the situation of reopening to tourists and economic partners after the COVID-19 epidemic is controlled, some country will face the potential risk of monkey smallpox infiltrating communities and medical facilities.
Around the world, smallpox infection has also been recorded in health facilities.
The Ministry of Health offers 6 principles of prevention and control of monkeypox infection in medical examination and treatment establishments:
Strengthen compliance with infection prevention and control practices in medical examination and treatment facilities.
Apply prevention of infection through “contact” and “droplets” when caring for confirmed cases and suspected diseases.
In the event of aerosolization procedures, it is imperative to apply additional prophylactic measures through the “air”.
Investigate, trace and identify close contacts to monitor, manage and advise on how to self-monitor health according to the guidance of the Ministry of Health.
Managing sick people’s relatives and visitors is related to monkey season.
