The spokeswoman for the General Directorate of Health Surveillance, Sandra Irala, said that all confirmed patients so far are male and their average age is 36 years.

The official explained that those affected reside in Asunción (capital) and the Central department.

Irala explained that the cases presented, as main symptoms, lesions on the skin of the face, arms, legs and genitals.

In this sense, he urged citizens to go to health services if they have skin lesions, which turn into vesicles.

The Paraguayan authorities confirmed the first case of monkeypox on August 25, and since then they have maintained an epidemiological alert.

A month earlier, the World Health Organization (WHO) had declared the disease an international public health emergency.
