Currently, in the state, only the two patients who have recently been confirmed with the disease are active, so the 14 men who have become ill with monkeypox have been discharged.

“We have not been hospitalized with that picture, fortunately we have not had problems,” he said.

González Galindo mentioned that so far, there are three patients suspected of monkeypox.

The Secretary of Health indicated that there are some patients who have shared that they have had physical contact with another person and there are some diagnosed who do not give more information.

Finally, he added that there are already native patients in the state , that is, the contagion originates here in Sinaloa, without having gone to another entity.
