After cases of monkeypox had already been confirmed in several European countries, the first case is now officially in Switzerland. As the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG) announced on Twitter, the infected person lives in the canton of Bern. When asked, Gundekar Giebel, media spokesman for the Bern health department, confirmed that it was a middle-aged person. After mild symptoms, the sample was sent to Geneva University Hospital for examination, where the suspicion was confirmed. According to the Bern health department, the person concerned, who probably came into contact with the virus abroad, is doing well.

According to the BAG, the situation is being closely monitored and close contact is being made with the cantonal doctors in order to be able to take appropriate measures such as monitoring and tests.
