Fourth monkeypox case confirmed in Singapore

Another case of monkeypox has been confirmed in Singapore, bringing the total number of cases detected here since June to four, the Ministry of Health (MOH) said on Friday (July 8).

The latest case, like two earlier ones, is an imported infection.

The patient is a 30-year-old male Indian national who lives in Singapore and recently returned from Germany.

He developed a rash in the groin area on June 30, and sought medical care when he came down with a fever on July 7.

He was taken to the National Centre for Infectious Diseases where his condition is currently stable.

MOH said he is not linked to the monkeypox cases earlier announced.

The ministry said contact tracing is ongoing.
