Because there has been an increase in Monkeypox cases, Illinois, New York, and California took a decision and decided to declare a state of emergency. The President of the US, Joe Biden wanted to control the situation before it gets too worse.
The situation should not reach a level that becomes difficult to handle. The world has already faced severe difficulties during COVID 19 pandemic, and therefore, now is the time to do everything possible to control the cases of Monkeypox.
The main aim of declaring an emergency state is to control the infection and let the public know that now is the time when getting a vaccination is imperative. The three states have detected about 6000 active cases of Monkeypox, and the idea behind the state emergency declaration is to handle the situation before it gets worse.
Monkeypox is a disease that is developed by infection with the monkeypox virus. This virus comes from the family of variola. This is a type of virus that gives rise to a disease known as Smallpox. The indications of Monkeypox are similar to Smallpox. Nonetheless, it is also essential to understand that both Chickenpox and Monekypox are two different diseases.
