(São Paulo = Yonhap News) Correspondent Kim Jae-soon = Health authorities are nervous as additional cases of monkey pox are reported in Brazil.

A 16-year-old teenager is being treated in isolation at a hospital in Corumba, an inland city, 415 km from Campo Grandi, the capital of the provincial capital of Mato Grosso do Sul, according to Brazilian media on the 31st (local time).

The state government said the young man lives in Porto Kiharo, Bolivia, and crossed the border on suspicion of monkeypox, crossed the border to a Corumba health facility on the 29th, and was admitted to the hospital a day later.

Earlier, Brazil’s Ministry of Health said the previous day that three suspected cases were reported in the provinces of Ceará in the northeast and in the provinces of Santa Catarina and Rio Grandi in the south, and they are being monitored under quarantine.

Cases reported from the states of Ceará and Santa Catarina are likely to be confirmed by monkeypox, the Ministry of Health said.

Monkey smallpox, which has been established as an endemic disease in Central and West Africa, has spread to Europe, North America, the Middle East and Australia, and is straining health authorities around the world.
