US Declares A Public Health Emergency Over The Monkey Pox Spreading

On Thursday, August 2022 US declared monkeypox spreading as a public health emergency concern. Now the maximum number of the affected people are from New York. But in the other areas of the USA, states are not free from the Monkey Pox spreading.

The medical experts believe that the real numbers of the affected people are relatively high as very few of them are just showing a very minimum number of symptoms similar to the single lesions.

Now the USA has delivered about 600,000 JYNNEOS vaccines to the country. These vaccines are developed against the monkeypox-related smallpox virus. The numbers of vaccine numbers are really very low and far from the 1.6 million number.

Health And Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said,

“We’re prepared to take our response to the next level in addressing this virus, and we urge every American to take monkeypox seriously and to take responsibility to help us tackle this virus,”¬†

But the virus-spreading nature is also becoming very different from the Africa Monkeypox. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statements, sexual activities are also becoming the cause of the virus spreading.  

For example, bed-sharing, clothing sharing, and prolonged time face-to-face contact. So as the preventive steps, you have to avoid any kind of skin-to-skin touching chances.
