How America struggled to respond quickly to the Monkeypox outbreak

In early May 2022, when the first cases of Monkeypox surfaced in the UK, Americans were asked not to panic.

Over two months later, the situation appears to be much different in America.

Close to 7,100 cases have been reported in the US across 48 states.

Currently, 80,000 people are being tested per week.

600,000 vaccines have been distributed throughout the nation.

The Monkeypox virus mostly spreads through close, intimate contact with an infected person.

If you have any symptoms of Monkeypox, talk to your healthcare provider.

Healthcare providers in the United States are on alert for patients who have rash illnesses similar to Monkeypox.
