By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: As of July 5th, 2022, there have been 6,924 confirmed monkeypox cases in over 52 countries, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports.
In the United States, there have been 560 confirmed cases of the disease.
In the Caribbean, The Bahamas has reported 1 case of monkeypox.
So far, officials say that most of the reported cases are among men who identify as gay, bisexual, or men who have sex with men.
However, monkeypox is not considered a sexually transmitted disease.
The World Health Organization (WHO) says that health officials in all countries should be on the alert for signals related to people presenting with a rash that may be associated with fever, enlarged lymph nodes, back pain, and muscle aches.
