The National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) released a note this Tuesday (24) in which it states that social isolation is not part of the measures to combat monkeypox.

However, the regulatory agency recommended that the population continue to adopt existing protective actions “not only against Covid-19, but also against other diseases”.

“As soon as it is justified, sanitary measures will be proposed, when applicable, in addition to the existing rules in force in Brazil,” the agency said.

Anvisa added that it is acting in accordance with the actions of other global health agencies and bodies and that “it remains monitoring the evolution of the situation in constant contact with the Ministry of Health”.

“According to the World Health Organization (WHO), monkeypox can be transmitted to humans through close contact with an infected person or animal, or with material contaminated with the virus”, informs Anvisa.

According to the regulatory agency, “the virus can be transmitted from one person to another through close contact with injuries, body fluids, respiratory droplets and contaminated materials such as bedding.”

In this sense, said Anvisa, “prevention and caution to avoid transmission of infection through respiratory and contact routes are indicated, as well as care in handling bedding, towels and sheets used by an infected person”.

“Hand hygiene in both cases is recommended”, concludes the note.
