What measures can I take to protect myself from mpox virus?



Members of the public are strongly advised to maintain vigilance and take the following precautions:

  • Monitor your health and maintain a high standard of personal hygiene, including frequent hand washing after going to the toilet, or when hands are soiled

  • Avoid contact with persons who are unwell and objects that may have become contaminated with infectious fluids such as soiled clothing, bedding, or towels

  • Avoid high-risk sexual activity, such as having multiple sex partners or casual sex

  • When travelling, avoid contact with wild animals that could harbour the virus, and consumption of bush meat

  • Seek medical attention immediately if you develop symptoms such as sudden onset of high fever, swollen lymph nodes and rash, and inform your doctor of any recent travel or exposure history.
