There is a warning by advocates that the US at risk of losing control on monkeypox
There is concern that the U.S. may lose control of monkeypox due to the Biden administration's slow response to the outbreak.
They say monkeypox is resembling the coronavirus pandemic's early days, with severely limited testing and a sluggish rollout of vaccines leading to an undetected spread of the virus.
“Our area of weakness lies in streamlining testing, making vaccines available, and streamlining access to the best therapeutics.
Despite bureaucratic and slow responses in all three areas, we have not contained this outbreak, according to David Harvey, executive director of the National Coalition of STD Directors (NCSD).
There is no novel virus like COVID-19, and there are well-known strategies to prevent monkeypox from spreading.
“It has been known to us for decades as a global community.
It spreads in a certain way.
People who are infected can be identified with tests.
During a recent briefing, White House Coronavirus response coordinator Ashish Jha said vaccines were highly effective against the virus.
