South Korea reported its first imported cases of monkeypox Wednesday, becoming the latest of some 40 countries and the first in East Asia to have identified the disease. “The patient reported to the authorities at the airport before coming into close contact with others and is now receiving treatment,” Peck added. Seoul’s Wednesday report came hours after Singapore announced its first imported case of the disease in this year’s outbreak. The patient, a 42-year-old British flight attendant who had been flying in and out of Singapore, tested positive for monkeypox on Monday.
