A TOTAL of nine suspected monkeypox cases had been notified to the Health Ministry (MOH) as of Saturday, and all of them have been confirmed negative, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said. 

Following a declaration by the World Health Organization (WHO) that the monkeypox infection is now a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), he said the ministry had reminded all health facilities to be aware of the current monkeypox situation and increase detection among at-risk patients.

He said non-Malaysian travellers should fill in the traveller’s card in the MySejahtera app, and travellers arriving from countries with reports of monkeypox would receive pop-up health messages every day through MySejahtera to remind them to monitor their symptoms and health status.

“Travellers arriving from those countries are advised to monitor their personal health status every day,  including for symptoms of monkeypox  for a period of 21 days from the date of arrival in Malaysia,” he said in a statement today.

Symptoms of monkeypox are fever, fatigue, maculopapular rash that starts on the face and then spreads to the palms and soles followed by other parts of the body, muscle spasms and swollen lymph nodes.

Khairy said for the period from May 1 to July 23, a total of 531,630 travellers arrived from countries that reported cases of monkeypox and the MySejahtera app issued a monkeypox health alert to all travellers.

“MOH calls on individuals with symptoms of monkeypox to immediately go to a health facility for examination and further treatment. Avoid contact with other people to prevent infecting others,” he said.

He said said operators of premises that provide contact services, such as spas and massages, should exercise  personal and environmental hygiene, as well as ensure their customers are healthy, do not experience symptoms of monkeypox and do not have maculopapular rash (skin rash).

The monkeypox virus can be spread through direct contact with a rash or lesion that occurs on the skin, either a new lesion or a scab, or fluid from the lesion, he added.

Khairy said the ministry had also increased the capacity of laboratories in the country from two to 12 laboratories that can conduct monkeypox virus detection tests, of which eight are government laboratories.

The ministry established sentinel surveillance at several private and government clinics to monitor the incidence of rash or skin lesions in addition to increasing surveillance at the country’s international entry points, he added.
