Last Saturday (8), the UK Health Care Agency told a “”Monkey disease“(Monkey box in English). According to the British National Health Service, cases are rare and people usually recover within weeks. Common symptoms of the disease are: Fever, headache, chills, fatigue and skin rash.

The victim is being isolated and treated by an epidemiologist in London. The patient is said to have recently returned from a trip to Nigeria, where British bodies are believed to have contracted the disease.

In 2018, the first case of this disease was diagnosed in the United Kingdom. All recorded cases involved returnees from West Africa, but according to Olhar Digital, “The British National Health Service has said it will detect the patient’s last contact in the country, including those traveling on the same flight from Nigeria.”.

“It is important to emphasize that monkeys do not spread easily among the population and that the overall risk to the general population is very low.”Colin Brown, director of medical and emerging infections at the UK Health Safety Agency, told The Guardian.
