Interview about monkeypox cases – “The laboratories are preparing”

«The laboratories are preparing»

The 2003 electron micrograph shows the oval-shaped monkeypox viruses (left) and spherical, immature viruses (right) recovered from a human skin sample.

Ms. Schmidt, the first case of monkeypox in Switzerland was diagnosed in your laboratory. I assume you have a lot to do now.

Yes, we are busy with the diagnostics. We are currently sharing material and information on establishing monkeypox analysis with other laboratories in Switzerland. It is good if as many as possible are prepared.
