Chewing bush meat cannot spread m0nkeyp0x – Kumasi traders clarify

Bush meat vendors in Kumasi have dismissed reports that eating the meat can transmit the monkeypox infection.

This comes after the Ghana Health Service issued a warning about the dangers of eating bush meat.

Traders that refused to give a recorded interview claim that their items are tested by the veterinary service before being sold.

As a result, they claim their products are healthy.

Some of the traders saw the warning against eating meat during the monkeypox outbreak as an intentional attempt to bring their enterprises to a halt.

They mentioned, for example, the cautions against their products during the ebola virus outbreak.

Meanwhile, the virus that causes monkeypox has been confirmed in Ghana.

The Ghana Health Service says five cases have been confirmed in the Eastern, Bono and Greater Accra regions.
