The minister says there is no risk of monkey flu to Chinese tourists

Santo Domingo, R.D.

The Chinese tourist was allowed into the United States without any danger and without any symptoms after being declared in contact with a patient diagnosed with monkey box disease.

Public Health Minister Daniel Rivera revealed this, saying the patient had not recorded any symptoms of the disease And Ramon de Laura, who has been admitted since July 26, is eager to leave the military hospital.

According to the protocol, he said he should be monitored and isolated until the results of laboratory samples sent to the CDC in Atlanta, USA, rule out the disease.

Although he points out that the incubation and development period of the disease is over, so there is no possibility of him getting the disease.

He said they were looking for a more familiar shelter where tourists could be isolated and monitored until the results of the samples arrived.

The Chinese tourist has been admitted to hospital and under surveillance since last Thursday after the United States Dominican health officials have been informed about a Chinese passenger identified as being linked to a person infected with monkey box disease on an international flight from Lagos, Nigeria (Africa).

He arrived in the country on July 9 for a holiday. After the announcement, the country traveler was identified and taken to hospital.

Monkey box is a disease characterized by fever, chills, headache, muscle and back pain, as well as swollen lymph nodes and skin rash. Its symptoms are identical, but milder and milder than the most deadly infectious disease, having been eradicated from the world in 1980 after the last natural disaster recorded in 1977.
