A man posted a social media account of being infected with monkeypox. Joao Pinheiro, thinking he had a cold sore, says that the lesion in his mouth “never got better” and that the symptoms then developed into tiredness, fatigue, mild fever and localized pain.

“I was starting to get tired/fatigue – which I thought was because of the 45°C heat I was doing where I was.” Then he reported that “a cold sore appeared. But this cold sore did not get better, it got bigger and then I started feeling swollen glands in my neck,” the young man wrote on his Twitter account.
