So the child was a child in the US state of California and an infant who did not live in the United States.
Symptoms of monkeypox can include fever, fatigue, and pimples on the skin. Infected people can be contagious for weeks. More than 15,000 cases have been reported this year in countries that do not normally get monkeypox. So far, more than 2,800 cases of monkeypox have been reported in the United States, with at least eight women affected, according to officials. Most of those affected in the US and Europe are men who have sex with other men. However, according to health officials, monkeypox can affect anyone. At least six cases have been reported in Europe in children aged 17 or younger.
Health officials say the monkeypox virus can be transmitted through close personal contact, towels and bedding.
