Monkeypox outbreaks: Here’s everything you need to know



Cases of the rare monkeypox virus are popping up in Europe and the United States, suggesting the smallpox-related virus is spreading locally rather than popping up due to travel to countries where the virus is endemic — primarily Central and West Africa.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating possible cases in the U.S., including a confirmed case in a man in Massachusetts. “CDC is urging healthcare providers in the U.S. to be alert for patients who have rash illnesses consistent with monkeypox, regardless of whether they have travel or specific risk factors for monkeypox and regardless of gender or sexual orientation,” CDC representatives said in a statement.
