Diagnosis of monkeypox in children and women for the first time

Officials of the US Department of Health have confirmed monkeypox in two young children.

According to officials, a teenager in the state of California and a young child in Washington DC have been diagnosed with monkeypox.

The statement described the health of both the children as good and clarified that the children may have contracted the disease from their families.

Health officials did not provide any further information on children affected by monkeypox.

US health officials also confirmed that at least 8 women across the country are also infected with monkeypox.

The diagnosis of monkeypox in children in the United States caused a wave of concern around the world, because until now, the disease was mostly affecting men.

Apart from this, the diagnosis of monkeypox in 8 women in the United States is causing concern among people, because in other countries this disease has not been diagnosed in children and women.

According to the AP report, 2,800 cases of monkeypox have been confirmed in the United States so far this year, while on July 24, the World Health Organization declared a global health emergency due to the said disease.

That is, the World Health Organization urged countries around the world to take special measures to protect against monkeypox.

The World Health Organization has also confirmed that by July 24, the number of monkeypox cases worldwide had increased to more than 16,000 and the disease had spread to 75 countries.

Monkeypox cases are appearing mostly in European and American countries, but increasingly cases are appearing in Asian countries as well.

The disease, which was initially found in monkeys in West Africa after 1970, was reported outside Africa in Europe for the first time in May this year.
