The number of monkey pox cases in the country has risen to about 6,600, according to US health officials

The United States government has declared the monkeypox outbreak a “public health emergency” after a significant increase in HIV infections.

The announcement would accelerate the distribution of vaccines, therapies and the provision of federal funds to reduce the spread of monkeypox in the United States.

The US government’s announcement comes less than two weeks after the World Health Organization announced the highest alert level on the organization’s scale in dealing with disease outbreaks, following an increase in monkeypox infections around the world.

The number of monkey pox cases has risen to about 6,600, according to US health officials.
