241 Confirmed Cases of Monkeypox in Portugal

Today, the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) confirmed 10 more confirmed Monkeypox cases of infection in Portugal, bringing the total to 241 cases so far.

According to the National Institute of Health Doctor Ricardo Jorge (INSA), “most infections have been reported, to date, in Lisbon and Vale do Tejo, but there are also cases in the North and Algarve. All confirmed infections are in men aged between 19 and 61 years old, with the majority being under 40 years old.” 

The DGS is monitoring the situation at the national level in conjunction with European institutions.  All the identified cases remain under clinical follow-up, and are stable.

It should be noted that Madeira remains Monkeypox free.
