TEMPO.CO, JakartaCentral Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo confirmed that the PCR test of a resident who was suspected of being exposed to monkeypox turned out negative.

Even though the test result was negative, Ganjar advised the public to stay alert to various similar symptoms of the viral disease. He also suggested people visit healthcare facilities to check when presenting the symptoms.
