Monkeypox: This virus can be present in the body even after several weeks of recovery

So far, more than 21 thousand cases of monkeypox have been reported in more than 80 countries. 
Many researches are being done about this virus around the world. Recently a study has also been published in the medical journal The Lancet.

The cases of monkeypox virus are increasing continuously around the world. The highest number of cases are coming in America, Spain, UK and Canada. In India also 9 cases have been confirmed. But till now the exact reasons for the virus spreading in so many countries are not being ascertained. Many research is also being done regarding monkeypox virus. In which information is being received about its new symptoms and ways of spreading. In this episode, a study has been published in the medical journal The Lancet .

It has been found in the study that even after several weeks of recovery from this virus, it can remain present in the body. Collavita, a researcher at Italy's National Institute of Infectious Diseases involved in this research, says that even several weeks after the symptoms of monkeypox, the DNA of this virus can remain in the patient's semen. According to the report of Dainik Bhaskar, this assessment has been done after research done on a patient.

A research has also been done in this regard in Spain. In which monkeypox virus has also been found in sputum and urine. In research done in 12 patients, the virus has also been found in the rectal tract. However, it is not yet clear whether this virus can spread from one person to another through semen. Research is being done regarding this.

Virus is spreading in many ways

Kolavita says that this virus spreads in many ways. There is also a risk of spreading monkeypox by sitting close to the patient for a long time, through skin-to-skin touch and respiratory droplets . Monkeypox can also be caused by coming in contact with the patient's wounds and rashes.

no need to panic

Epidemiologist Dr. Anshuman Kumar says that there is no need to panic with monkeypox virus. The strain that is spreading this virus right now is not fatal. Even though the cases are increasing but the death rate is not high. Most of the cases are also coming in gay men. No mutation has been seen in the virus yet. So there is no need to panic with this virus. It is just important that people be aware of the symptoms of this virus and follow the rules to prevent it.
