Monkeypox: Confirmed cases in the US crosses 10,000 mark

The United States has passed 10,000 reported cases of Monkeypox.

The CDC reports that America has the world’s highest number of confirmed cases.

The CDC has confirmed a total of 10,392 reported cases in the country.

Monkeypox symptoms are often mild. The first signs include fever, headache, muscle aches, chills and exhaustion.

After about 3 days, infected people will experience a rash on the face, before it spreads to other parts of the body.

The rash eventually turns to fluid-filled blisters that scab over in about 2-3 weeks.

The virus can spread through direct contact with body fluids or the popped blisters.

The US government has shipped over 630,000 doses of the Monkeypox vaccine to states and jurisdictions.
