5. What to do in case of symptoms
If you have symptoms consistent with monkeypox :
- Contact a doctor (GP, hospital...) without delay who will establish the need to carry out or not a screening of the virus. Report to the doctor any contact or exposure at risk so that he/she can determine whether any protective measures should be taken.
- While waiting for your doctor's counsel, isolate yourself from other people, i.e. stay in your home, stay in your room if the home is shared, avoid meeting other people and avoid sharing objects. If you have to go out to the doctor or meet other people: put on a mask and cover the pimples.
