Los Angeles County, California – Two more suspected instances of monkeypox infection have been identified by representatives from the Los Angeles County Department of Health on Friday.
According to the press statement, both instances include individuals who recently traveled and are now having symptoms. Both of them subsequently went into isolation after exhibiting symptoms.
With these two additional instances, the total number of potential cases of monkeypox in the county is now four.
People who are infected with monkeypox have symptoms like fever and pain throughout the body, and a rash that may spread across a person’s entire body. Monkeypox can only be passed from one person to another by continuous or intimate contact.
Health experts advise taking the same precautions as during the coronavirus pandemic, such as avoiding contact with infected people, washing hands frequently, and wearing face coverings.
Despite the fact that there is currently no known cure for monkeypox, there are a number of therapies that may help alleviate some of the symptoms.
