(Worthy News) – Monkeypox has been upgraded to the same category as diseases including plague and leprosy, with doctors required to notify health authorities of every case.

As of Wednesday, it will be a legal requirement for doctors to inform their local council or health protection team if they suspect a patient has the virus, while labs must tell the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) if a sample tests positive.

The move elevates monkeypox to the same legal status as 33 other diseases – including leprosy, malaria, rabies, plague and yellow fever – which are designated as “notifiable” under the UK’s health protection regulations. [ Source: UK Telegraph (Read More…) ]
