Monkeypox Patient: Pakistan Requests WHO for Vaccine

Islamabad: In light of the spread of monkeypox, Pakistan has requested the World Health Organization (WHO) for vaccines.

Pakistan has sought the Mpox vaccine, i.e., the monkeypox vaccine, from the WHO for severe patients infected with the HIV virus.

Recent research has revealed a mortality rate of 15% due to HIV infections among the affected patients of monkeypox.

The country recently requested the WHO to provide the monkey pox vaccine for a 40-year-old patient who is HIV positive and in critical condition in a government hospital in Islamabad.

Government officials mentioned that they had written to the WHO authorities for antiviral medications for the patient, considering the deteriorating condition of the patient.

Doctors at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) have expressed concern about the patient’s deteriorating health and emphasized that obtaining the required vaccine could enhance the patient’s chances of survival.

More than three weeks have passed since the WHO was requested for the vaccine, but there hasn’t been any response yet. All the necessary paperwork for obtaining antiviral drugs has been completed, but the international public health agency hasn’t supplied it yet.
