The chairman of the World Medical Association, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, told the newspapers of the Funke media group, according to a statement on Monday, for younger people who did not receive the previous compulsory vaccination against normal smallpox, such a vaccination would now be “sensible”. Bavaria’s Health Minister Klaus Holetschek (CSU) expects a quick recommendation from the Standing Vaccination Commission (Stiko) on possible vaccination against monkeypox.

A total of four cases of monkeypox were registered in Germany by Sunday afternoon. After the first case of illness recorded in Munich, there were three other confirmed infections in Berlin, as announced by the Federal Ministry of Health. Further cases are to be expected given the extensive contacts of the infected. Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) announced at the World Health Assembly in Geneva that he would present isolation and quarantine recommendations together with the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Tuesday.
