New York City, the epicenter of the Monkeypox outbreak, has declared a public health emergency. On Saturday, the New York City Health Department made the Big Apple the second major city to declare a pubic health emergency following San Francisco last week.
New York health officials said the state is now the epicenter of the Monkeypox outbreak in the US. CDC data showed that New York has more than 120 cases of the viral disease, which is more than any other state.
Health care experts warned that the Monkeypox outbreak in America may get out of control. According to the National Coalition of STD Director’s, the Biden administration’s response to Monkeypox has been bureaucratic and slow.
