Monkeypox: Bayelsa Doctor, Two Others Fully Recovered, Others Getting Better

The Bayelsa State government says some persons in the state infected with the deadly Monkeypox virus have started showing signs of recovery.

Twelve persons were quarantined in the state after the first case of suspected monkeypox infection was reported a few days ago. The virus later spread to the neighbouring state of Rivers.

The Commissioner for Information in Bayelsa, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, in a statement issued on Sunday, said that the infected persons who were quarantined at the Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital, NDUTH, Okolobiri, were showing signs of recovery.

Mr. Iworiso-Markson didn’t provide details on the recovery, but said that “two of the index cases and the medical doctor affected by the disease have since fully recovered and discharged.”
