Council officials made the shocking discovery during a routine inspection last November and closed the takeaway, saying it posed an ‘imminent risk’. Owner Wen Yi Cao, 50, of Grimsby, admitted 13 severe food hygiene offences when he appeared at Grimsby Magistrates’ Court on July 15. We are working with NHS England and NHS Improvement to contact the individuals who have had close contact with the case prior to confirmation of their infection, to assess them as necessary and provide advice. This includes contacting a number of passengers who travelled in close proximity to the patient on the same flight to the UK. People without symptoms are not considered infectious but, as a precaution, those who have been in close proximity are being contacted to ensure that if they do become unwell they can be treated quickly. A rash can develop, often beginning on the face, then spreading to other parts of the body, particularly the hands and feet.

A notable proportion of cases detected have been in gay and bisexual men, so UKHSA continues to urge this community to be alert to monkeypox symptoms. You should call NHS 111 or a sexual health centre immediately if you have a rash with blisters. Stay at home and avoid close contact with other people until you’ve been told what to do.

  • If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices.
  • Before you go to a party or event, check yourself for monkeypox symptoms, including rashes and blisters.
  • We will release the results of our ongoing investigations in subsequent technical briefings – these will be published regularly.
  • A notable proportion of the cases identified to date have been among people who are gay, bisexual and men who have sex with men, so we are asking these groups in particular to be aware of the symptoms.
  • His last programme on the station will be on Sunday August 14, when his current cycle ends.
  • The virus does not spread easily between people and the risk to the UK population is low.

Based on the growing evidence of how the monkeypox virus is being passed on in this outbreak, close contacts will no longer have to isolate for 21 days unless they develop symptoms. We are also working with the NHS to reach any healthcare contacts who have had close contact with the cases prior to confirmation of their infection, to assess them as necessary and provide advice. The virus does not usually spread easily between people, but it can be passed on through close person-to-person contact or contact with items used by a person who has monkeypox, such as clothes, bedding or utensils. Monkeypox is usually a self-limiting illness and most people recover within a few weeks. UKHSAhealth protection teams are contacting people considered to be high-risk contacts of confirmed cases and are advising those who have been risk assessed and remain well to isolate at home for up to 21 days.
