HeadlineJul 26, 2022

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting the U.S. has surpassed Spain to become the country with the most known monkeypox infections since an outbreak of the viral disease began earlier this year. The U.S. has reported more than 3,400 confirmed or suspected cases. The White House is reportedly preparing to name a federal monkeypox coordinator in the coming days. While the World Health Organization has declared a global health emergency around monkeypox, the White House has yet to do this.
