No specialized treatment or medicine provided to island’s first monkeypox patient

The mother of the 40-year-old man who is the island’s first recorded case of monkeypox 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.

The patient who is at Nicosia General Hospital’s special monkeypox ward has been ‘bombarded’ with anti-biotics, she also said.

The infected man was 40 and had been travelling recently.
