By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The United States declared monkeypox a public health emergency as cases increase throughout the North American country.

The announcement was made during a briefing with the Department of Health and Human Services.

CNN reported that since the first case of monkeypox was identified in the United States in mid-May, more than 6,000 cases have now been detected. All states, except Montana and Wyoming, have reported cases.

The US announcement comes one month after the World Health Organization declared monkeypox as a public health emergency of international concern.

According to WHO, a public health emergency of international concern is an “an extraordinary event” that presents a “public health risk to other States through the international spread of disease”. The WHO said that such an emergency requires a coordinated international response.

CNN reported that prior to the announcement by the Biden Administration, some cities and states, including New York City, San Francisco, California, Illinois and New York, had already declared monkeypox an emergency. The emergency declaration allowed them to free up funding and resources to be able to respond to the outbreak.
