Jordan..a national plan for defining the disease state of monkeypox and determining the investigation mechanism

The Jordanian Ministry of Health has developed a plan to define the disease case of monkeypox, determine the mechanism of investigation and instruct to activate it, and report any suspected cases of infection at all border crossings and health centers.



The Ministry confirmed that there are no cases of suspected monkeypox infection in Jordan, after a circular to the epidemiological investigation teams in all hospitals and health centers, of the need to follow up on any suspected case of monkeypox symptoms, since last Thursday. It was chaired by the Secretary-General of Primary Health Care and Epidemiology, Raed Al-Shboul, and in the presence of the Prime Minister's advisor, Adel Al-Balbisi, the Director of the Epidemiology Department and the Director of Communicable Diseases at the Ministry of Health, to discuss the current situation regarding "monkeypox" disease.
