The number of monkeypox cases in the U.S. has continued to rise, with more than 1,000 cases reported as of May 17. The World Health Organization has said that the monkeypox outbreak is “unusual and concerning.”
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is working to increase testing and vaccination for monkeypox. The CDC has said that the monkeypox virus is not easily spread from person to person, but it can be spread through contact with the virus’s fluids or through close contact with an infected person.
The CDC is also working to track the spread of monkeypox and to identify people who have been exposed to the virus. The CDC is urging people to be aware of the symptoms of monkeypox, which include fever, rash, and swollen lymph nodes.
