    A first confirmed case of monkey pox was detected Thursday in Ile-de-France, the Directorate General of Health announced on Friday. He is a 29-year-old man with no history of travel to a country where the virus is circulating, health authorities said. As soon as his infection was suspected, this person was taken care of and, in the absence of seriousness, is isolated at his home.

    A first unknown contamination

    Transmission occurs through contact between animals and humans or between infected individuals. For the moment, the precise cause of the very first contamination detected in the United Kingdom is unknown. For monkeypox, there is no cure, but the disease often heals on its own.

    With symptoms such as cough, fever, headache or body aches, monkeypox can be reminiscent of the flu or Covid-19. But large pimples, like blisters, can spread all over the body. Once infected with smallpox, symptoms take between 6 and 21 days to appear.
