The Bulgarian Ministry of Health announced this Thursday that the first two cases of Monkeypox have been confirmed in the country.

According to Reuters, they are two men who are “stable” in a hospital in the capital Sofia.

It is also known that these men have been in Spain and Great Britain for the last two weeks, however, it is still unknown whether or not they have been in contact with infected people.

The clinical manifestation of Monkeypox is usually mild, with most infected people recovering from the disease within a few weeks.

Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle and back pain, swollen lymph nodes, chills, exhaustion, progressing to a rash.

The incubation period is typically six to 16 days, but it can be as long as 21, and when the crust of the rashes falls off, the infected person is no longer infectious.
