Monkeypox patients in Ontario must be isolated in health-care settings, officials say

Health-care workers treating patients with monkeypox should use proper N95 masks, eye protection and isolation protocols similar to those of COVID-19, officials say.

infection prevention and control documentreleased this month, Public Health Ontario says that while historically monkeypox has been limited to prolonged face-to-face contact or skin-to-skin contact with a lesion, “the possible transmission during the prodromal period and similarities to variola virus (smallpox), the potential for airborne transmission has been suggested.”

As such, these patients should be placed in an airborne isolation room with negative pressure ventilation when being treated in a health-care setting.If this isn’t available, public health Ontario says the patient can be placed in a single room with the door closed.

Hope we have enough of Those masks. Propaganda bullshit at work beware Lets see if the government is going to supply all Healthcare works with the proper PPE. What's that going to do? Everyone is traveling, in planes, maskless, not even done with one pandemic and here comes another. Who had Monkey Pox on their 2022 bingo card 👋🏽

Always someone from Toronto who was travelling and brought it back. Isn't that how covid started? Sounds like the same narrative to me. So what now Shutting the world down for a virus? Media needs to shut up and stop spreading propaganda. No one is buying it It's kinda sad seeing that a majority of people are treating this as a joke.

Bahaha.... Stop the fear mongering you liberal funded disciples You guys need to be cancelled Why not co-exist with Monkeypox?! Now the COVID-19 has been ordered to end by the stupid Canadian government. Nobody is required to wear a mask. It seems all of a sudden the COVID disappeared. WTF! Lmao this is so dumb 🤣

Health care planning is part of investment planning in pandemic era, RBC wealth head saysFinancial advisers are now incorporating health care planning into the conversations they are having with clients as part of their long-term financial goals

In an infection prevention and control document released this month, Public Health Ontario says that while historically monkeypox has been limited to prolonged face-to-face contact or skin-to-skin contact with a lesion, “the possible transmission during the prodromal period and similarities to variola virus (smallpox), the potential for airborne transmission has been suggested.to commit to within its first 100 days in office.United States and are running tests on a patient in South Florida to confirm if the person has contracted the disease, which is staging a rare outbreak outside of Africa.Create Free Account A leading adviser to the World Health Organization described the unprecedented outbreak of monkeypox in developed countries as “a random event” that might be explained by sexual behaviour at two recent raves in Europe.

” As such, these patients should be placed in an airborne isolation room with negative pressure ventilation when being treated in a health-care setting. If this isn’t available, public health Ontario says the patient can be placed in a single room with the door closed. The Children’s Health Coalition wants the next government to commit to a $1 billion investment over four years in the , a cross-sectoral children’s health summit with government, children’s health-care organizations and health-care providers to agree on principles for a long-term provincial strategy, and to develop and release Ontario’s first-ever Children’s Health Strategy. When neither option is available, officials say “precautions should be taken to minimize exposure to surrounding individuals. Centers for Disease Control and the Florida Department of Health said in a statement on Sunday, “and the person remains isolated.” Health-care workers must wear a fit-tested and seal-checked N-95 respirator, gloves, gown, and eye protection. According to the coalition, there are 16,000 children currently on waitlists for surgery in the province. Public Health Ontario says these precautions should be maintained until scabbing has fallen off and new skin is present. That marks a significant departure from the disease’s typical pattern of spread in central and western Africa, where people are mainly infected by animals like wild rodents and primates and outbreaks have not spilled across borders.

This is in stark contrast to how COVID-19 was dealt with back in early 2020, when health-care workers were not provided with adequate PPE while dealing with serious outbreaks in both hospitals and long-term care. Andrea Haefele, mother of 11-year-old Bella, who was diagnosed with global developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder and Pitt-Hopkins Syndrome, knows well that the pandemic has brought lengthy delays for treatments and surgeries. The first monkeypox case in the United States was reported in Massachusetts on Wednesday. In April 2020, the Ontario Nurses Association sought a court injunction to force some long term-care homes to provide staff with items like N95 facial respirators. At the time, the association argued that in some cases, homes locked the masks up and “actively dissuaded nurses from using the precise PPE that they have deemed necessary. It was really challenging for us,” said Haefele.” It appears as though Ontario health officials are acting swiftly to contain possible spread of this virus.
