By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Data from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that as of July 12, 2022, there were 10,611 confirmed cases of monkeypox in 65 countries.
In the U.S., there are 929 cases of the disease.
The CDC says that symptoms of monkeypox can include fever, headache, muscle and backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills, and exhaustion.
Health professionals are advised to be on the alert for rash that can look like pimples or blisters that appear on the face, inside the mouth, and on other parts of the body, like the hands, feet, chest, and genitals, or anus.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has reconvened an emergency committee that will provide views on the recent surge in monkeypox cases and will propose temporary recommendations on how to better prevent and reduce the spread of the disease and manage the global public health response.
The public can take preventative measures by avoiding skin-to-skin contact with people who have a rash that looks like monkeypox.
