Japan is racing to follow through with newly established monkeypox treatment and prevention protocols after the nation’s first case of the viral disease was detected on Monday.

Officials say, however, that there’s no need for panic, since the disease does not spread as easily as COVID-19.

The health ministry announced Monday evening that it had confirmed the nation’s first case of monkeypox in a Tokyo resident in his 30s. In late June, he traveled to Europe, where he had contact with someone who was later diagnosed with monkeypox, before returning to Japan in mid-July.
