While the pandemic, which has been effective for two years, has decreased, the monkeypox virus has started to spread around the world. The virus has so far been officially seen in nine European countries, as well as the USA, Canada and Australia. Monkeypox symptoms include high fever, headache, back pain, muscle pain and swelling. Monkeypox virus is transmitted through a wound in the skin, through the respiratory tract, or through the eyes, nose and mouth.

A rare disease, monkeypox was first discovered in 1958 when two outbreaks of a smallpox-like disease appeared in monkey colonies held for research.

WHAT IS A MONKEY FLOWER?

It is a rare disease that comes from the same virus family as monkeypox. The virus was first discovered in 1958 in colonies of research monkeys, according to the CDC.

The first human case of the virus was detected in 1970 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Most monkeypox infections still occur there today, but the disease has also been reported in several other central and west African countries, the CDC said.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF MONKELOOM VIRUS?

Monkeypox virus has some symptoms that occur in different parts of the body. Among the first detected symptoms, high fever, headache, back pain, muscle pain and swelling come to the fore.

As the fever increases, a rash and itching begins to occur in the body. This usually starts on the face and then reaches other parts of the body. It commonly occurs on the palms and soles of the feet. Itching can be extremely uncomfortable or painful. On the other hand, after this itching process passes, the sores on the soles of the feet and palms crust over and pass.

Scientists and experts state that this infection can generally last between 14-21 days.

IN WHICH COUNTRIES WAS THE MONKEYPOX SEEN?

Monkeypox virus has so far been officially seen in nine European countries, as well as the USA , Canada and Australia. Normally found in remote parts of Central and West Africa, the European countries where this disease is seen were the United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Italy and Sweden.

HOW IS THE MONKLE POLO VIRUS TRANSMITTED?

Monkeypox virus can be easily transmitted from someone who is in close contact with an infected person. The virus can be transmitted through a wound in the skin, by breathing or through the eyes, nose and mouth.

Experts made statements that the virus can also be transmitted sexually.

On the other hand, this disease can also be transmitted from infected creatures such as monkeys, mice and squirrels, or in products such as bedspreads, clothes and clothes that have the virus on them.

HOW FATAL?

According to the statements made by scientists in the past, monkeypox virus is similar to smallpox and is generally mild. While the disease can go away on its own within a few weeks, it can be very severe in some cases. There are records of this disease causing death in West Africa.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR MONKELE BLOWERS?

Vaccination is an important step to prevent any epidemic. It is also known that vaccines developed against smallpox provide 85% protection against monkeypox.

On the other hand, it was reported that antiviral drugs also have an effect.

A new night train from Amsterdam to Barcelona!

Railways organization European Sleeper submitted its night train offer between Amsterdam and Barcelona to Dutch Consumers and Markets Authority ACM. If permission is granted, the Barcelona night train will start its services on 10 December 2023.

The new night train will also stop at many of the Netherlands’ train stations. These stations are expected to be Amsterdam Centraal, The Hague HS, Rotterdam Centraal and Roosendaal. Train services are estimated to be three times a week. In addition, it is stated that the possibility of daily voyages may occur in the future. The number of expeditions will be determined by capacity and equipment adequacy.
European Sleeper, as a Dutch-Belgian company, was established last year to close the night train gap to Europe and to be an alternative to air travel. The organization recently announced that it would open night train services to France in cooperation with Sunweb.
Night train services have developed in recent years, but have come to a standstill with the pandemic. Currently Nightjet offers night trains from Amsterdam, Utrecht, Arnhem to Frankfurt. On this route, passengers can transfer to Basel, Zurich, Munich, Innsbruck or Vienna.
