 Ash about monkeypox: no need to panic

< p>

Professor Nachman Ash, Director General of the Ministry of Health, commented on the introduction of monkeypox into Israel. So far, there is no reason to panic, he said. "It is very important to calm down now— this is not COVID version 2.0. These are outbreaks that were even before the coronavirus,” he recalled. Ash noted that smallpox — a disease that has been eradicated in the world, but monkeypox — this is her “relative”, therefore, vaccination carried out in childhood should also act on this version of the virus.
