A German court has rejected an emergency application to lift a quarantine order on the roommate of a man who has monkeypox in the northwest state of North Rhine-Westphalia even though the man was vaccinated.Because he had been vaccinated, the roommate argued that he did not need to isolate himself.

The court, however, upheld the decision of the Düsseldorf health department, which imposed a 21-day quarantine order on him, the German newspaper Rheinische Post reports.On Wednesday, the court decided that the vaccination was invalid since the European Union has not approved the JYNNEOS vaccine for use, and there have not been any accepted efficacy data for the vaccine in the EU.As per a court spokesman, according to a statement released by the court, the court's decisions were based on findings and guidelines generated by the Robert Koch Institute in Germany, which is the equivalent of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States.

The Robert Koch Institute says a high-risk contact is someone who has spent at least one night in the same living quarters as someone with an MPV diagnosis during the infectious period of MPV.
