By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: As of August 5, 2022, there have been 28,220 confirmed Monkeypox cases in over 88 countries, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports.

In the United States, there have been 7,509 confirmed cases of the disease.

Experts 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.

Last month, the WHO declared the viral disease a public health emergency and on Thursday, the United States also declared Monkeypox a public health emergency as cases continue to rise.

The public is advised to take preventative measures to protect themselves and their families.

These include wearing masks, constant hand washing, disinfecting spaces, avoid contact with bodily fluids of people with skin lesions (hugs, massages, mouth-to-mouth kisses, mouth-to-skin, and sexual contact).
