ストーリー

The health authority in Portugal, the country with the most monkeypox cases, said on Thursday (May 19) that it was worried about the spread of the disease but asked people to stay calm as the transmission risk was low.
Portugal has reported 14 cases of monkeypox and there are around 20 suspected infections, the spokesperson for the country's monkeypox working group, Margarida Tavares, told Reuters in a video interview.
They all have mild symptoms and their health status is improving. No one has been hospitalised, she said.
"The health authority... is worried... It is important to act in the right way and make the right decisions to break transmission chains," Tavares said. "(But) the risk for the population is low."
"It is not a disease that is easily transmitted."
Tavares said cases in Portugal were all detected in sexual health clinics and those infected were men aged between 20 and 40 years old who self-identified as gay, bisexual, or men who have sex with men.
There are two main strains: the Congo strain, which is more severe - with up to 10% mortality - and the West African strain, which has a fatality rate of about 1%. Portugal's cases are of the West African strain, according to Tavares.
Monkeypox is usually a mild viral illness, characterised by fever and a distinctive bumpy rash.
The outbreaks in Britain, Portugal, Spain, the United States, and other countries raised alarm because the disease, which spreads through close contact and was first found in monkeys, mostly occurs in West and Central Africa, and only very occasionally elsewhere.
The Portuguese health authority has asked those with symptoms to refrain from direct physical contact with others.

タイムライン

PORTO, PORTUGAL (MAY 19, 2022) (REUTERS)
(SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) PORTUGAL'S MONKEYPOX WORKING GROUP SPOKESPERSON, MARGARIDA TAVARES, SAYING:
"It is an outbreak because, by definition, an outbreak happens whenever we have a number of cases above what is expected and, in this case, we didn't expect it, meaning that we have never seen it (in Portugal) and it is not normal to see cases of infection in humans by the monkeypox virus and therefore it is an outbreak. We already have 14 cases that meet the definition of an outbreak."

(SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) PORTUGAL'S MONKEYPOX WORKING GROUP SPOKESPERSON, MARGARIDA TAVARES, SAYING:
"They (cases) seem to be of… I think I can say this already… the West African strain. Not all cases have been sequenced. It's a slow process."
WHITE FLASH
(SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) PORTUGAL'S MONKEYPOX WORKING GROUP SPOKESPERSON, MARGARIDA TAVARES, SAYING:
"For now, all cases are mild. Nobody is hospitalised. These were all situations that were detected in outpatient clinics (STD clinics) and from what we know they (patients) are improving well. The symptoms include fever, tiredness, muscle aches, headaches, swelling of lymph nodes, and the appearance of lesions on the skin, particularly in the genital area."
WHITE FLASH
(SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) PORTUGAL'S MONKEYPOX WORKING GROUP SPOKESPERSON, MARGARIDA TAVARES, SAYING:
"The information we have so far of confirmed cases is that those infected are men between the age of 20 and 40 and who said they had sexual relations with other men. This is the current situation."
WHITE FLASH
(SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) PORTUGAL'S MONKEYPOX WORKING GROUP SPOKESPERSON, MARGARIDA TAVARES, SAYING:
"We currently believe that the reason why this transmission is occurring in this way is only due to close contact between the infected person with skin lesions, namely in the genital area, and another person. Therefore, we believe that it is through close and intimate contact and not through actual sexual transmission. We can't exclude that possibility, but we don't have evidence of that."
WHITE FLASH
(SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) PORTUGAL'S MONKEYPOX WORKING GROUP SPOKESPERSON, MARGARIDA TAVARES, SAYING:
"The health authority and those dealing with this situation are worried and it is very normal that they are because all cases are very important and it is important to act in the right way, making the right decisions to break transmission chains. From a population point of view, considering what external (organisations) ECDC and WHO say and considering (what we say) internally, our risk assessment is that the risk for the general population is low. It is not a disease that is easily transmitted between people because it involves very close contact."
