San Diego declares monkeypox a public health emergency

San Diego County has declared monkeypox a public health emergency following a growing number of cases in the area.

The announcement was made just two days after the state of California declared a public health emergency.

“The situation we face with monkeypox is fundamentally very different,” said San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, according to the Times of San Diego. “We take it very seriously, but as I mentioned earlier it is exponentially less transmissible. We know more about it. We also have a vaccine at the start of it.”

“At this time, monkeypox outbreaks are disproportionately impacting our LGBTQ community, but we know it can spread to others,” Fletcher added. “And it is vitally important that we not stigmatize any individual, that we not stigmatize any community, that we not cast any aspersions.”

As of Monday, the county had just 46 confirmed or likely monkeypox cases. All cases were men.

The numbers may not justify the announcement, but the county is declaring an emergency to match the state and support vaccination efforts.
