On Wednesday, the New York Health Department revealed two more New Yorkers are presumed to be positive for monkeypox cases.

With the latest infections, the Health Department said the current count of monkeypox positive cases in NYC is four.

The latest infections came two weeks since the virus was first detected in the Big Apple.

Initial findings have shown that monkeypox is a generally less-severe cousin of smallpox, but infections can be fatal.

Sources said the virus is typically confined to regions of Africa but has spread in recent weeks across the globe.

Moreover, President Biden has said that “everybody should be concerned” about the outbreak.

On Tuesday, Rosamund Lewis, the World Health Organization’s technical lead for monkeypox, said that the global tally of monkeypox cases had eclipsed 550, covering 30 countries.
