The Monkey Pox disease which has been reported in various parts of the country, is only a ‘suspicion’ at the moment Health Minister Professor Isaac Adewole said
According to the minister, the disease can only be confirmed after laboratory tests have been conducted
Samples from patients have been sent to the World Health Organisation center in Senegal and test results are expected within 48 hours
“We will know within 48 hours if what we are dealing with is Monkey Pox.”
The minister further disclosed that states did not report the outbreak of the disease on time, but urged Nigerians not to panic.
