Jamaica’s first Monkeypox patient said to be in stable condition

Jamaica’s first Monkeypox patient is said to be recovering from the disease.

A source in the Health Ministry said the man who presented to the public health system on July 5 after arriving from the United Kingdom, is stable.

Meantime, discussions are ongoing between the police and the Ministry of Health to determine what actions are to be taken against him after he left the May Pen hospital in Clarendon, where he was being treated, on Saturday.

However, he was found and returned to the facility.

Head of the Police’s Corporate Communications Unit, Senior Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay said the authorities are still assessing what direction to take.
