 Monkeypox infected urged to abstain from sex

Health authorities in the UK have urged those who test positive for monkeypox to abstain from sex until symptoms have resolved.

This is reported by CNBC.

In addition, a recommendation was issued that previously infected persons continue to use condoms for eight weeks after the illness has passed. This is suggested as a precautionary measure.

UK health authorities stressed that risks to the public remain low, but urged people to seek medical attention if they notice unusual skin rashes or lesions.
