Government not accepting criticism about monkeypox vaccines

“We do not accept any criticism that Cyprus did not take measures to have vaccines and medicines about Monkeypox, since still no other country has medicines and vaccines, Konstantinos Athanasiou, the Health Ministry’s communication officer, said in reply to criticism.

The condition of the 40-year-old man who has been recently diagnosed with monkeypox and is hospitalized at the Nicosia General Hospital is good and he has the best available treatment.

The mother of the 40-year-old man has reported that he is yet to be provided with specialized treatment or medicines and that his condition is deteriorating since Tuesday when he was first diagnosed.

Talking to state television on Wednesday evening she appealed to health authorities to get the vaccines against the infection as well as specialized medicines the soonest possible.

Athanasiou added that the Health Minister is in contact with his counterparts of neighboring countries in order to get vaccines for monkeypox. He noted that from the moment Cyprus has the first confirmed case it will proceed with actions to accelerate the receipt of vaccines.
