Three new suspected cases of monkeypox have been found in Pakistan in people who have just arrived from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

On April 26, the travellers took two different aircraft to arrive in Karachi, and they were showing signs of the contagious illness.

According to Dr. Ghulam Murtaza Shah, director of border and health services, all three patients have been sent to an isolation facility as a precaution.

To determine whether these people have the monkeypox virus, the health officials are running testing.

Following the discovery of two cases of the viral illness in people who had just returned from Saudi Arabia, there have been other recent probable cases of monkeypox. Both people, who were citizens of Rawalpindi and Islamabad, were confined as soon as they arrived in Pakistan.

A zoonotic illness is one that can spread from animals to people, such as monkeypox. Monkeypox symptoms include fever, chills, enlarged lymph nodes, headache, muscle aches, backache, and fatigue.

After that, a rash appears, frequently first on the face before moving to other regions of the body. The illness normally heals on its own in a few weeks, but severe cases can lead to consequences like pneumonia, sepsis, and encephalitis.
