Monkeypox: Deadly virus spreads to Delta State, 9 persons hospitalised

About 9 persons have been allegedly hospitalised on Thursday as the dreaded monkeypox disease hit Delta State.

According to Punch, six of the affected persons were from Agbor, where the state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, hails from.

A doctor at the Federal Medical Centre Asaba, who confirmed the development, said the remaining victims were from around the state capital.

It was gathered that the victims were diagnosed of the disease on Wednesday, adding that their blood samples have been collected for tests.

The State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Nicholas Azinge, however, denied the outbreak of the disease in the state when contacted by Punch correspondent.

Azinge said, “Not true! There is no case of monkeypox in Agbor, not even any patient with a high suspicion of it.”
