(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, AUG 17 – Twenty-one days of isolation for dogs or other pets that have come into contact with a person with monkeypox. These are the new guidelines of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), issued today after reviewing the case of the infection in Paris of a dog and its owner. “House pets that have had close contact with one or more symptomatic people should be kept away from other animals and other people for 21 days after the most recent contact – we read – pets should be kept at home and infected people. they should not take care of animals that have been exposed to the disease. ” The CDCs are trying to compile a list of animals that can develop monkeypox but don’t have enough data yet.
However, they specify that cans, for example, can be infected simply by touching used sheets or blankets or other objects used by a person with the disease. (HANDLE)
