Castilla y León has not detected cases of monkeypox

Castilla y León does not have, to date, any detected case of monkeypox, of the total number of cases detected in recent days in Spain in relation to this disease.

This was stated during the press conference after the Governing Council held this Thursday by the spokesman for the Board, Carlos Fernández Carriedo, who after pointing out that "there have been no cases detected in the Community", has also stated that from the regional government they are going to “comply with the protocols”, although today they do not have “any added information” in this regard.

Monkeypox is endemic in West and Central Africa and, although it has generated sporadic outbreaks outside the African continent, it has never previously circulated in Europe.

The United Kingdom was the first to sound the alarm on May 6. Ten days later, Portugal confirmed five cases on its territory and another 20 suspects. Now the virus seems to have spread to Spain, which has already confirmed eight cases and is investigating another twenty.
