Recent scientific evidence suggests that sexual interactions between men are driving the spread of monkeypox rather than skin contact, as previously thought.
The Biden administration declared a public health emergency over the disease in early August. On Tuesday, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra told Just the News that the government had acquired 1 million monkeypox vaccinations and was preparing to procure millions more.
Pointing to a string of recent studies, health experts have begun to question that skin on skin contact was the primary transmission method, instead pointing to same-sex oral and anal intercourse, NBC reported. Initial outbreaks spread primarily through gay communities, with gay men comprising the overwhelming majority of confirmed cases. Source: Just the News
