Monkeypox in Canada: Act now to stop it, expert urges, before it’s too late – CTV

May 27, 2022

With 26 confirmed cases of monkeypox in Canada, health officials warn there will likely be more cases reported in the coming days and weeks. However, one expert says the outbreak can be stopped if the country works quickly to get it under control.

Infectious disease expert Dr. Isaac Bogoch says that Canada will “definitely” see more cases of the virus in the “few days and weeks ahead.”

“This outbreak is going to crumble along unfortunately for a bit of time,” Bogoch told CTV’s Your Morning on Friday.

However, if health officials act quickly, Bogoch said the outbreak in Canada can be stopped.

“Currently, there’s only 26 people in a country of 38 million people and the risk of the general population today is extremely, extremely small. But let’s play our cards right. Let’s deal with this quickly and effectively so that no one else needs to get this infection and that we just get this under control,” he said.
