Public Health believes N.B. has monkeypox case, despite negative test – CBC

Province sending out notice Friday declaring monkeypox a reportable disease

Jun 03, 2022

The person with New Brunswick’s first suspected case of monkeypox had recently travelled to areas where there were other cases of the disease, the province’s acting deputy chief medical officer of health says.

While Public Health isn’t releasing details about the travel-related case for privacy reasons, the person wasn’t assessed until after their symptoms faded, said Dr. Yves Léger.

That made the sample the province sent to the national lab in Winnipeg not ideal, Léger said, and it tested negative for monkeypox.

But because of the patient’s travel history and clinical photos he said it’s still fair to say there was a suspected case of monkeypox in New Brunswick.

“I think in this case we’re probably going to be left with not knowing for sure if it was that or not,” Léger said in an interview with Information Morning Fredericton.

He said the province is sending out a notice Friday declaring monkeypox a reportable disease as part of a requirement under the Public Health Act that mandates the reporting of unusual illnesses.
