By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The United States has confirmed the first case of Monkeypox in a pregnant woman, officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed, CBS reports.
The baby has been delivered safely and both are doing well, health officials say.
The CDC warns that pregnant women may especially be at increased risk for severe outcomes from the viral disease.
“There has been a case of a pregnant woman who delivered,” the CDC’s Dr. John Brooks stated.
Dr. Brooks noted that the baby seemed to not have contracted the disease.
The newborn was given an infusion of immune globulin, an antibody treatment approved by the FDA to deploy during monkeypox outbreaks.
This latest case comes as the CDC has confirmed that the Monkeypox outbreak in the U.S. has reached 3,591 across 45 states.
The Monkeypox cases in the current global outbreak have been reported predominantly among men who have sex with men. However, experts warn that anyone is at risk of contracting the disease.
