The first case of the monkeypox virus has been confirmed in New Zealand.
According to the news of the “Stuff News” agency in New Zealand, which is based on a statement from the Ministry of Health, it is known that in the city of Auckland the monkey pox virus has been confirmed in a 30-year-old person in the city of Auckland.
The statement states that this “is the first case of monkey pox recorded in the country”.

Monkeypox, which is known as one of the rare diseases caused by an endemic virus, is divided into two types, the Congo type and the West African type.
The virus, which is generally transmitted from animals to humans and rarely from humans to humans through close contact, can cause a high fever and itchy blisters on the body.
According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1,600 cases have been registered in 39 countries around the world.
Europe continues to be the epicenter of the monkeypox epidemic.
