Chief Minister, Pinarayi Vijayan announced on social media the first case of monkeypox in Kerala state, India (computer translated):

Monkeypox has been confirmed in the state. Monkeypox was confirmed by a passenger from UAE. He was admitted into isolation as a precautionary measure at the time he showed symptoms. Those who came in contact with him were also under observation. The condition of the patient is satisfactory.

The government is taking steps to strengthen surveillance by testing people with similar symptoms of monkeypox. Everyone should strictly follow the guidelines given by the Health Department. Everyone should make it a habit to wear a mask and wash their hands with soap. There is no situation to worry about. We can prevent monkeypox like Covid.
