    According to the Minister, the action will be intended to create and establish measures for preventing and monitoring the population regarding the arrival of such disease to the South American country.

    "We are declaring the alert; we must generate it starting tomorrow. We still have not registered any cases (of monkeypox in Peru); however, the alert is already being declared to prevent any eventuality," said Lopez.

    The National Center for Epidemiology, Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) and the National Health Institute (INS) of the Ministry of Health (Minsa) will be involved in the continuous monitoring of the population regarding the new disease.

    The Peruvian Minister said that the Ministry of Health has been considering the possibility of acquiring vaccines to immunize the population against monkeypox.

    During the morning, Lopez took part in the delivery of equipment to support telehealth services at the primary care level.
