New Delhi. In India, which has been battling the corona epidemic for the last two years, now cases of monkeypox along with corona are also becoming a cause of concern. So far 9 patients of monkeypox have been reported in the country, which have been found in Kerala and Delhi. At the same time, one patient has also died.

Dr. Mishra says that what is the effect of monkeypox post monkeypox or long monkeypox, it will clearly come to the fore only when this disease passes for some time but still some things like smallpox come to the fore. can. For example, during the infection of monkeypox, there are pus filled blisters or pimples on the skin of the body. When they are about to heal, they may feel like itching, in that case if they break, then even after recovering from this disease, its marks or stains can remain on the body. This was also seen during smallpox or smallpox.
Dr. Mishra explains that the WHO has informed about the complications of monkeypox that secondary infection of monkeypox can lead to bronchopneumonia, sepsis, encephalitis and infection of the cornea along with eyesight. As seen during smallpox, pimples come out on the face and also come out around the eyes. Due to infection close to the eyes, the cornea of the eye can be affected and there is damage to the eyesight. Dr. Mishra says that this disease is cured in two to four weeks, but in many patients the infection can also become serious. Due to this problems may increase.
