Monkeypox alert in China: ‘Do not touch foreigners’

China’s citizens were told not to touch foreigners after registering its first case of monkeypox.

According to the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the Chinese national had traveled to Berlin and Spain before entering China.

China’s chief epidemiologist Wu Zunyou said, “To prevent monkeypox infection and as part of our healthy lifestyle, it is recommended not to have skin contact with foreigners.” The comments, which appear not to be based on scientific evidence, were dismissed online as racist.

The man with monkeypox was “immediately isolated” upon entering the southwestern city of Chongqing. “There is no trace of social transmission and the risk of transmission is low,” local health officials said.

The World Health Organization declared monkeypox a global public health emergency in July. (© Telegraph Media Group Ltd 2022) ​​​​​​​​​​​​​
