    Monkeypox Outbreak Hits Westchester as Suspected NYC Case Count Rises: DOH
    The United States is now in the throes of its largest monkeypox outbreak in history -- and New York accounts for nearly a third of the suspected cases
    Published 25 mins ago • Updated 23 mins ago

    New York health officials say the unusual monkeypox outbreak afflicting the Empire State and more than a dozen others across the U.S. apparently has spread to Westchester and Sullivan counties, with the suspected case count now up to 21.

    The latest number from the state Department of Health includes 19 presumed monkeypox cases in New York City, up five from the count health officials in the five boroughs provided two days ago, and one case each in Westchester and Sullivan.

    The individuals tested positive for orthopoxvirus, the family of viruses to which monkeypox belongs, and though confirmation comes from the CDC, the federal agency and local ones say it's important to treat a confirmed orthopoxvirus case as part of the current monkeypox outbreak at this time...

      Monkeypox Outbreak Climbs Again as Suspected NYC Case Count Hits 23
      The United States is now in the throes of its largest monkeypox outbreak in history -- and New York accounts for nearly a third of the suspected cases
      Published 30 mins ago • Updated 29 mins ago

      Four new presumed cases of monkeypox have been detected in New York City, bringing the Big Apple's rising case count one shy of two dozen.

      Health officials said the unusual outbreak afflicting New York, and more than a dozen other states across the U.S., has reached at least 23 people in the city, with two recent cases detected in Westchester and Sullivan counties.

      The latest number from the city health department jump four cases from the 19 presumed monkeypox cases reported days earlier.

      The individuals tested positive for orthopoxvirus, the family of viruses to which monkeypox belongs, and though confirmation comes from the CDC, the federal agency and local ones say it's important to treat a confirmed orthopoxvirus case as part of the current monkeypox outbreak at this time.

      Why? Orthopoxviruses are rare in the area generally, New York state health officials say, and symptoms in confirmed cases have been consistent with those associated with monkeypox...

        Hundreds line up to get monkeypox vaccine in New York City

        BY NICK CALOWAY
        JUNE 23, 2022 / 6:02 PM / CBS NEW YORK

        NEW YORK -- Hundreds of people lined up for monkeypox vaccinations Thursday in Chelsea.

        Demand was so high that it overwhelmed capacity and forced the city cut off walk-in appointments, CBS2's Nick Caloway reported.

        A long line formed outside the Chelsea Sexual Health Clinic after city health officials urged anyone who may have had a recent exposure to moneypox to come and get the vaccine.

        Almost immediately after the site opened, city officials said appointments were filled through Monday. Officials are working to expand capacity.

        "I think that lots of gay men in New York have been keeping tabs on it, perhaps closer than our straight counterparts. I think that lots of us had heard stories, maybe a friend of a friend who had gotten monkeypox, and it felt, there was a sense that if we didn't get the vaccine now, especially after we're going to see so many friends this weekend at Pride, that we would eventually get monkeypox," one person waiting for the vaccine told CBS2.

        It comes after 30 people in New York City have tested positive for orthopoxvirus, which is presumed to be monkeypox.

          Cases in NYC


          As of June 27, 48 people in New York City have tested positive for orthopoxvirus. All cases are likely monkeypox.

          Most of these people have had mild illness, have not been hospitalized and have recovered on their own. Even with mild illness, the rash and sores from monkeypox can be itchy and painful.

          Anyone can get and spread monkeypox. The current cases are primarily spreading among social networks of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, so this community is currently at greater risk of exposure.

          If you have a new or unexpected rash or other symptoms of monkeypox, contact a health care provider.
