Barbados’ only confirmed case of Monkeypox, a Barbadian man in his twenties, has fully recovered.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness also disclosed that there have not been any associated cases with this index case which was reported three weeks ago.

People who have a travel history and who are experiencing any unexplained rash, swelling of the lymph nodes or who have been in contact with anyone with a rash, are advised to seek medical attention at their nearest polyclinic.

Surveillance at the ports of entry has been enhanced as the Ministry of Health and Wellness continues to be in an alert state for Monkeypox. (BGIS)
