As of Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have announced that there are over 45 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the U.S., with 11 of those in New York state.
Although there are currently no deaths recorded, the CDC urges the public to be aware of monkeypox’s characteristics.
The most visible monkeypox symptoms are rashes/lesions on the face, hands and arms. Officials also say that localized rashes on the genitals can also occur.
Monkeypox is spread through direct contact with others who were infected, as well as respiratory fluids that can be shared in extended periods of close proximity.
The CDC is now working with local labs to increase testing and prevention.
