Larnaca woman with suspicious rash diagnosed with chickenpox

In light of the current global outbreak of monkeypox, a woman in Larnaca who presented symptoms of a suspicious rash earlier in the week, was diagnosed with chickenpox and was treated at Nicosia general hospital, the Ministry of Health clarified on Sunday.

“On the evening of Wednesday, June 1, a 31-year-old woman visited Larnaca general hospital because she had a suspicious rash. An on-the-spot assessment was made and because it was a suspicious rash, all protocols and procedures were put in place and the patient was transferred by ambulance to Nicosia general hospital, where she was hospitalised,” Health Ministry spokesman Constantinos Athanasiou, told Cyprus News Agency (CNA).

He added that “on Friday a sample was sent for examination and the clinical diagnosis was that it was chicken pox. With the diagnosis, the alarm ended,” he concluded.
