The US government has declared a national health emergency due to the outbreak of monkeypox with thousands of infections registered, although, for the moment, no deaths. 'We are prepared to take our response to the next level,' said the Secretary of Health Xavier Becerra, in a call with journalists on Thursday. The declaration will allow national agencies to access emergency funds and will facilitate the management of vaccines and treatments for the disease. 'We encourage all Americans to take monkeypox seriously and take responsibility to help us deal with this virus,' said Beccera.
