The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) says 10 new cases of monkeypox have been confirmed in six states.

The NCDC had reported 21 cases and one death as of May 28.

Monkeypox is a rare viral infection that does not spread easily between people. It is usually a mild self-limiting illness and most people recover within a few weeks. However, severe illness can occur in some individuals.

The agency, in its recent monkeypox update, said 44 new suspected cases of monkeypox were reported from May 30 to June 5 from 14 states, of which 10 were confirmed positive from six states.

The states with new confirmed cases are Edo (2), Rivers (2), Plateau (2), Lagos (2), Ondo (1) and Imo (1).

Since September 2017, Nigeria has continued to report sporadic cases of monkeypox (MPX). On May 26th 2022, a monkeypox National Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) was activated in response to the risk assessment conducted, which put Nigeria at high risk for a Monkeypox outbreak.
