First Two CHILD Monkeypox Cases Confirmed in US, Both Had "Contact" With Gay or Bisexual Men

Two children have tested positive for monkeypox in the United States, according to the CDC.

This is the first time monkeypox has been detected among children in the US.

One is a toddler in California while the other infant is not a US resident and was ‘transiting through’ Washington D.C., officials said.

While it’s unclear how the children caught the virus or their symptoms, they’re reportedly ‘doing well’ and likely were infected by ‘household contacts.’

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said both children had ‘contact’ with gay or bisexual men.
