There has been only one report of sick people transmitting the monkeypox virus to an animal (a dog).
Scientists in France are looking at a case of human-to-animal transmission from a dog.
Possible clinical signs of monkeypox in animals include lethargy, loss of appetite, cough, swelling, crusting, fever, and/or smallpox-like skin lesions or rash.
In August 2022, health officials are warning people infected with monkeypox to stay away from household pets, as the animals may be at risk of catching the virus.
Fever To get cold Swollen lymph nodes Exhaustion Muscle aches and back pain Headache Respiratory symptoms (such as sore throat, stuffy nose, or cough)
No disinfectant is registered for use against monkeypox, all products with EVP claims have been tested against such viruses.
Avoid close skin-to-skin contact with people who have had a monkeypox-like rash. Do not hug, kiss, or have sex with a person with monkeypox.
The main remedy is that, for now, confirmatory testing for monkeypox should be performed in a laboratory.
