Soaring monkeypox case numbers have been cited by the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) as the reason it will reconvene its expert committee to decide whether the outbreak constitutes a global health emergency.
The move comes on the back of an official in New York City reporting a spike in monkeypox cases where incidents more than doubled in the past week. The official states the outbreak in the nation’s largest city accounts for 30 percent of all U.S. cases, as Breitbart News reported.
The U.N. subsidiary health agency is now aware of 9,200 cases in 63 countries at the last update issued Tuesday.
AFP reports monkeypox infections have been slowly building since early May outside the West and Central African countries where the disease has long been endemic.
