Monkeypox can be transmitted through s#x — NCDC warns
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), has warned that it’s possible to contact monkeypox through s#x.

.
Speaking at a recent event, Dr Ifedayo Adetifa, NCDC’s director-general, said that the monkeypox virus may be present in the body fluids of infected individuals and so transmissible to humans through close contact with an infected person, animal or contaminated material.

.
He stated that monkeypox, which presents with fever, rash and swollen lymph nodes and may lead to a range of medical complications, has a potential for higher virulence and transmissibility, and affected individuals tend to experience stigma and momentary loss of livelihood and economic hardship.
.
.
Also, in a statement posted on its website, NCDC said, “After about 1 to 3 days of fever, the rash erupts, beginning on the face and then spreading to the body with the face and palms/soles being mostly affected.
.
.
They can also occur in and around the genitals which is why contact during s#x is one mode of transmission. It is mostly a self-limiting illness that often lasts for two to four weeks.”
