A third case of monkeypox infection has been confirmed in Japan, and this time the infection was found in a man assigned to Yokota Air Force Base. This is reported by the NHK TV channel.
The first two cases in Japan were confirmed in July, all in men returning from overseas. This time, it’s about a man who has never traveled outside of Japan, but has been in contact with someone who has recently been abroad. He was sent to the hospital at the base.
