The authorities continue to register infections of monkeypox in the Canary Islands. The Ministry of Health of the regional government counts four new confirmed cases and six under study, of which four are probable and two suspect, due to a possible diagnosis of monkey pox since yesterday. This means that there are a total of 32 confirmed cases since the start of the health alert declaration, of which 23 were detected in Gran Canaria and nine in Tenerife.

All cases are having mild symptoms and remain in home isolation receiving follow-up from Primary Care.

Thus, the confirmed and notified cases in the Canary Islands since the beginning of the alert and until today are as follows:

– 32 confirmed cases, 23 in Gran Canaria and nine in Tenerife.

– Seven probable cases, pending confirmation, six notified in Gran Canaria and one in Tenerife.

– Three suspected cases, pending confirmation, two reported in Gran Canaria and one in Tenerife.

The protocol of the Ministry of Health classifies cases between probable and suspected depending on whether the patient meets clinical criteria and epidemiological criteria (probable cases) or if it only presents clinical criteria and in such case it is considered a suspected case.
