Quebec's Public health authorities are investigating a number of suspected cases of monkey pox in the Montreal area.
Dr. Mylene Drouin says based on recent outbreaks in Europe and a case reported in the United States with travel ties to Montreal, there is a strong possibility the infections in the city involve the virus linked to monkey pox.
Dr. Drouin says the disease is transmitted by prolonged close contact and there is no risk from everyday activities like taking public transit or shopping or dining out.
Public health authorities are investigating 17 suspected cases of monkeypox in the Montreal area.
Dr. Mylene Drouin told reporters today the cases have not yet been confirmed by a laboratory.
