  • Monkeypox is a rare disease that is caused by infection with the monkeypox virus.
  • There have been several cases of monkeypox reported internationally and local transmission has occurred among these cases.
  • The spread of monkeypox typically requires prolonged face-to-face contact. It may spread from person-to-person through skin-to skin contact, contact with infected surfaces or items, and respiratory transmission.
  • There is currently one case of monkeypox identified in Victoria, a man in his 30s who recently returned from the United Kingdom and is isolating away from the community.
  • The case was infectious while travelling on the following flights: 
    • flight EY10 which departed London on 14 May and landed in Abu Dhabi at 0615 
    • flight EY462 which departed Abu Dhabi on 15 May and landed in Melbourne at 0545 on 16 May.
  • As a precaution, anyone who travelled on these flights is being urged to monitor for symptoms. Anyone developing symptoms should seek medical care, wearing a mask and calling ahead to make sure they can be isolated away from others.
  • Clinicians should consider testing for monkeypox in returned travellers with compatible symptoms.

What is the issue?
