Faced with the continuous fermentation monkey acne epidemic, many countries have long been waiting, strengthening screening and introducing restrictions in customs, airports, borders and other places. On May 22, the Bangladesh State Health Service issued a warning at each port of the country to prevent the spread of monkey acne. At the same time, all the air, land and maritime ports were required to be vigilant, and suspected cases were sent to infectious disease hospitals in time.
Mainland China has also begun to take a series of measures to respond to the risk of cope with the risk of acne. On June 9th, Xu Wenbo, director of the Virus Diseases of the China Disease Prevention and Control Center, introduced that China Disease Control has established a detection method for dual targets for monkey acne virus genes, and has verified its sensitivity and specificity in Sierra Leion, Africa, Africa. You can find the input monkey acne cases in time. On June 14, the official website of the National Health and Health Commission released the "Guidelines for Monkey Acne Diagnosis and Treatment (2022 Edition)", which requires improving the ability to diagnose monkey acne for medical institutions.
On July 25, the General Administration of Customs issued an announcement that people from the country from the disease of the monkey acne should strengthen their examination and require people who have exposed to the cases of fever, headache, facial and physical rash such as fever, headache, facial and physical rash, and should take the initiative to take the initiative to take the initiative to take the initiative to take the initiative to take the initiative to take the initiative to take the initiative Declars to customs, customs officers will sample testing.

At present, there is no treatment for monkey acne virus infection. However, monkey acne and ceiling virus are similar in genes, which means that antiviral drugs and vaccines developed to prevent smallpox can be used to prevent and treat monkey acne virus infections. On July 28, the US CDC published a statement that there are currently two vaccines that can be used to prevent monkey acne virus infection. The former was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2019. It is only approved in Europe and the United States. The latter is used by FDA licenses to treat smallpox. When applying for new drugs, it can be used to treat monkey acne.
Jin Dongyan, a professor at the School of Biomedicine of the University of Hong Kong, analyzed that the immune effect of inoculating ceiling vaccines in the body is lifelong. Generally, people over 40 years of age have taken ceiling vaccines, and immune memories are in the body. This is equivalent to this group in the entire population. A "intermediate barrier" was built.
But at the same time, it is worth noting that since China stopped inocular vaccine in the early 1980s, people under the age of 40 have generally no immunity to smallpox and monkey acne. Therefore, while paying close attention to the international monkey acne epidemic in China, we must prepare in advance and keep vigilance in advance. Once a case is found, the virus transmission is blocked in time to avoid falling into a passive situation.
