Earlier, India confirmed its fourth case of monkeypox virus, with a 34-year-old male from Delhi who had no history of overseas travel testing positive. He recently attended a stag party in Manali, Himachal Pradesh, according to news agency PTI, citing official sources. The man was a West Delhi inhabitant. He was hospitalised to the Maulana Azad Medical College Hospital in the national capital three days ago after developing monkeypox symptoms. His samples were sent to the NIV on Saturday, and the results were positive, according to the sources.

Monkeypox is treated with lotions and fever drugs, and if a blood infection or viral pneumonia develops, appropriate treatments are supplied. According to the Centre's 'Guidelines on Management of Monkeypox Disease,' human-to-human transmission occurs predominantly through large respiratory droplets that need sustained close contact. It can also be spread by direct touch with bodily fluids or lesions, as well as through indirect contact with lesion material, such as contaminated clothes or linen from an affected individual.
