Monkeypox Infection Risk in Greece Is Very Low, Health Experts Say

ATHENS – Becoming infected with monkeypox presents a very low risk to Greece’s general population, according to current data, said the country’s National Vaccination Committee on Tuesday.

Additionally, the disease’s clinical and epidemiological features present no evidence that call for any mass vaccination, it was added.

Meanwhile, the Hellenic Pasteur Institute announced that the diagnostic department and the National Measles & Rubella Reference Laboratory are on standby to diagnose skin-rash diseases such as monkeypox.
