Govt moves to ensure monkeypox contact tracing

Ljubljana, 25 May - The outgoing government adopted a decision on Tuesday to pave the way for including monkeypox in a group of infectious diseases under which all healthcare providers are required to report any new cases to competent authorities. Following the first confirmed monkeypox case in Slovenia, the move will enable contact tracing.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says monkeypox outbreaks in non-endemic countries can be contained.
