CDC reports four additional monkeypox cases in US

An additional four cases of monkeypox have been reported across the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

The cases add to a growing number of 25 cases now reported nationwide.

U.S. cases

“There are five each in California and New York and two each in Colorado, Illinois and Utah,” Fox News reported.

“Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington state have all separately reported one case of the monkeypox virus,” the report added.

Global cases

In addition to cases in the U.S., more than 700 cases have been reported worldwide, according to the report.

While researchers are concerned about the spread of monkeypox, the levels are nowhere near those associated with the coronavirus.

No fatalities

In addition, no deaths have been reported from the monkeypox and many patients have recovered even without hospitalization.

Some smallpox vaccines are available for the treatment of monkeypox, though no vaccine has been specifically created to stop it. The spread is clearly a concern, but it is not a pandemic, despite public fears pushed by some.
