The World Health Organization (WHO) has now declared the monkeypox outbreak a public health emergency! The W.H.O Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus made the announcement on Saturday morning and said,

“I have decided that the global monkeypox outbreak represents a public health emergency of international concern”

He also added there seems to be a pattern that can be looked out for,

“For the moment this is an outbreak that’s concentrated among men who have sex with men, especially those who have multiple partners, that means that this is an outbreak that can be stopped with the right strategies in the right right groups.”

Per CNN, 

Currently, the US is reporting over 2,800 probable or confirmed monkeypox cases in 44 states, DC and Puerto Rico, according to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Globally, there are over 16,500 cases reported in 74 countries.
