The UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has announced the first case of monkeypox in the UAE.

The first case was detected in a 29-year-old woman who arrived from West Africa, the ministry said. The patient is receiving the necessary medical care.

MoHAP reassured community members that the UAE health authorities are taking all necessary measures, including investigation, examination of contacts, and monitoring their health, official news agency WAM reported.

The ministry affirmed that it is cooperating with other health authorities in implementing an epidemiological surveillance system to ensure sustainable efficiency and community protection from communicable diseases, and rapid detection, as well as work to limit the spread of all diseases and viruses, including monkeypox, in the UAE.

The Ministry called on the public to glean information from official sources in the UAE, and to refrain from spreading rumours and false information.
