FG denies their monkey pox injection caused an outbreak of it in some parts of the country

Due to reports making round that the FG's caused a major outbreak of the Monkey Pox in some parts of the country  due to a free medical care given in the affected areas, FG has come out to deny these claims.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said:

''The Federal Government has not conducted any free medical service or care in either Bayelsa or Rivers state, as alleged in the fake report being circulated. So that could not have been the cause of the outbreak of Monkey Pox in both states. Monkey Pox is a virus found only in monkeys and it is rare in human beings. It belongs to the same family as Chicken Pox and Smallpox. It is suspected that someone may have contacted it by eating monkey meat, thus triggering the current outbreak," the Minister said.
