Monkeypox Cases Surpass 20,000 in the United States

HEALTHCARE

Monkeypox cases in the United States have surpassed the 20,000 marks, which is the most reported infection in any country. According to US CDC data, the US states reporting the highest number of monkeyox cases include Texas, California, Florida, Illinois, New York, and Georgia.

According to a report from the US CDC, there are signs that the monkeypox outbreak is decreasing in the United States. But due to the causes of cases decreasing in the United States, and several other countries, they are not understood properly, and the patterns have not been uniformed. The US CDC cannot predict the timing and precise trajectory of the decline in monkeypox cases in the US.

Last week, new monkeypox cases have decreased worldwide, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has reported infections decreased by 25 percent last week. The ten most affected countries by monkeypox disease are Spain, Brazil, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Canada, the Netherlands, Colombia, and Peru.

The reported monkeypox cases in regions of the United States also decreased last week, but Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of WHO, said it is very hard to draw proper conclusions about the epidemic in the regions.

He said some countries in North America continue to report an increasing number of cases, and in some countries there is likely to be under-reporting because of stigma and discrimination. But he also said a downward trend can be the most dangerous time.
