What is monkeypox? Symptoms, risk factors, treatment and how the virus is spread
By Virginia Langmaid
The Biden administration has declared the monkeypox outbreak in the US to be a public health emergency.
"We're prepared to take our response to the next level in addressing this virus, and we urge every American to take this virus seriously and to take responsibility to help us tackle this virus," US Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said.
