Morocco has announced that it has identified three suspected cases of the viral disease monkeypox.
According to the country’s Ministry of Health, the three suspected cases, currently under health care, are in good health and have gone through medical analysis, pending results.
The ministry said it had formed a special task force to monitor the national situation.
Asides Morocco, the World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed cases of monkeypox in 12 countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia, Britain, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands, France, and Sweden.
These cases exclude the 21 countries where the disease is considered endemic, all in West and Central Africa.
WHO says it is working with the affected countries and others to expand disease surveillance to find and support people who may be affected, and to provide guidance on how to manage the disease.
