Seven out of the 13 monkeypox patients on admission at the Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital, Okolobiri in Bayelsa have fully recovered.
The state Commissioner for Information, Mr Daniel Iworiso-Markson, revealed this in a statement on Wednesday.
He said the seven patients had been discharged from the hospital.
He said the six other patients under medical surveillance at the teaching hospital were responding positively to treatment.
“The government has been able to successfully contain the spread of the disease as no new case has been reported in the last few days.
“With the way and manner government deployed its machinery and with the team of dedicated health and medical personnel, monkeypox will soon be fully kicked out of Bayelsa state,” he added.
