A recent outbreak of MPOX has been reported principally, but not exclusively, amongst MSM in Europe, the UK, and the US, including NY State. Transmission has been linked to raves, saunas, sexual activity, and close intimate contact through MSM sex networks and sex parties. The outbreak has not been linked to casual contact or respiratory routes. The CDC has provided the preliminary guidance below. Because the number of cases in the US is low thus far, we do not yet understand some aspects of the outbreak, so we can expect the guidance to evolve with time. This information is provided so you can make informed and responsible decisions to protect your health.
What Are the Symptoms?
Early flu-like symptoms of MPOX can include:
– Swollen lymph nodes
