India has increased surveillance and ordered its port and airport employees to remain vigilant and isolate sick people travelling from impacted countries who have symptoms or a history of monkeypox.

The health ministry has also instructed officials to conduct thorough thermal screenings of suspected foreign travellers who have travelled to monkeypox-affected nations in the previous 21 days.

According to official sources, the health ministry has asked the National Center for Disease Control and the Indian Council of Medical Research to keep a close eye on the situation and boost community surveillance in the occurrence of a positive case.
