Third suspected monkeypox case identified in Sacramento County, health officials say



HAVE IT NOW. THIS COMES AS MORE CASES HAVE BEEN SUSPECTED IN THE GLOBAL EPIDEMIC OF THIS VERY RARE DISEASE THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION OR WHO HAS IDENTIFIED 002 CASES IN 12 WESTERN COUNTRIES. SO HERE’S WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE SIX PEOPLE THE CDC IS ENTERING THE US. THERE ARE AREIX S. THEY WERE PASSENGERS WHO SIT NEAR AN INFECTED TRAVELER WHO HAD SYMPTOMS ON A FLIGHT FROM NIGERIA TO THE UK EARLIER THIS MONTH SEPARATELY CDC OFFICIALS ARE ALSO INVESTIGATING A CONFIRMED CASE OF MONKEYPOX IN A MAN IN MASSACHETUS WHO HAD RECENTLY TRAVELED TO CANADA AND JOIN US NOW TO GET MORE PERSPECTIVE ON THIS DR. VANESSA WALKER DR. WALKER. THANK YOU FOR JOIN US BUT FIRST IOT G TOSK A THEN THESE SIX PEOPLE GOT INFECTED BECAUSE THEY GOT IT NEAR THE PERSON WHO GOT INFECTED ON AN AIRPLANE. WELL, REMEMBER THEY ARE INVESTIGATED, RIGHT? SO IT IS NOT 100% THAT THEY ARE CONFIRMED. SO WE WILL TAKE TIME TO SEE IF THEY ACTUALLY HAVE THE VIRUS BUT WHEN YOU’RE SITTING NEXT TO SOMEBODY ON A PLANE YOU’RE IN QUITE CLOSE CLOSE BUT THIS IS NOT LIKE COVID BBW DROPLETS THAT ARE CREEDAT OR NEED TO SPREAD. THIS VIRUS IS DIFFERENT FROM VICOD. YOU MUST BE VERY CLOSE TO THESE PEOPLE AND IN FACT THE LIKELY RISK FACTORS GOING TOE B DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE INFECTED EITHER THE VARIOUS BULBS OR WITH THE CLOTHES THE PERSON WAS WEARING. SO THIS IS A MUCH HIGHER CONTACT DISEASE NOT SOMETHING YOU WILL JUST WALK BY SOMEBODY AND AND GET FROM THERE FROM THERE WELL TO REPRODUCE, AND YES THEY ARE INVESTIGATING BUT IT WAS SIX INFECTED PEOPLE THAT WERE IN THIS PLANE. AND SO IUE GSS IT’S JUST A LITTLE CONFUSING BECAUSE AT THE FIRST DR. WALKER WE HEARD YOU KNOW, HE MUST HAVE BEEN REALLY REALLY CLOSE TO PROXITYMI FOR A LONG LONG TIME, RIGHT? AND SO YOU KNOW, UNLESS YOU LIKE LYING WITH THE PERSON OR YOU KNOW IN THE SAME, YOU KNOW USING THE SAME LEAVES ETC SITTING ON THE SAME CCHO OR THIS KIND OF THING, BUT NOW I WANT TO SAY, YOU KNOW, C IS SIX DIFFERENT PEOPLE AS SIX PEOPLE COULD BE CLOSE TO ONE PERSON. YOU HAVE THE PERSON ON YOUR RIGHT THE PERSON ON YOUR LEFT, BUT I DON’T KNOW. I THINK THAT’S WHY PEOPLE GET A LITTLE WORRIED ABOUT IT. WELL I WANT THERE HAS BEEN A LONG FLIGHT ANY TIME YOU’RE ON A PLANE ESPECIALLY IF U’REYO IS GOING BACK, YOU KNOW, AND THEN REGULAR COACH SEATS THESE FLIGHTS ARE PACKED AND YOU’RE AROUND PEOPLE FOR MANY HOSUR AND YOU KNOW TO BREATHE THE SAME AIR AND WE DON’T REALLY WEAR MASKS ON PLANES AS MUCH AS WE WERE BEFORE, I COULD DEFINITELY SEE HOW THIS ENVIRONMENT COULD POTENTIALLY LEAD TO YOU EXPERIENCING SPREAD OF ISTH INFECTION . DO YOU HAVE AN EYE? I DO NOT THINK WE IN THE GENERAL POPULATION HERE HAVE TO BE TERRIFIED THAT WE ARE GOING TO GET MONKEOXYP NOW, BUT I MEANT, IT ALSO SPREADS BY TOUCHING REAL PAIN OR SAID THIS PERSON WITH OPEN PAIN SITTING ON A SEAT THEN YOU SIT ON THE SEAT. YEAH, SO IT’S A SEAT. THIS IS A CONTACT WITH SOMETHING THIS OTHER PERSON HAS BEEN IN CONTACT WITH WHERE? INFECTIOUS MATERIAL WOULD TOUCH IT. So if you sit on a seat, and they know they left infectious material behind, then you came into contact with that seat. THIS IS ANOTHER NOT PENTIAL SOURCE BUT REMEMBER THE PLANES THEY CLEAN THE SEATS AND BETWEEN NOW ESPECIALLY WITH CIDOV THEY HAVE MUCH HIGHER CLEANING THAN THEYSED ALL BUT AS I SAID THE MAIN SOURCE OF INFECTION DU VISIRUS IS GOING TO BE DIRECT CONTACT WITH PERSONS CLOSE TO CONTACT AND I LIKE I SAID, I REALLY DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO BE AFRAID THAT THEY WILL GET THIS VIRUS IN THEIR EVERYDAY LIFE. DO WE NEED THIS WHEN PEOPLE GET A SMALLPOX VACCINATION AND IF YOU I MEAN WHO SHOULD I NOT REMEMBER IF I REALLY HAD ONE. I WAS BORN IN 1976. DID I GET A BKAC THEN? I DO NOT REMEMBER. I WANT IT WAS ERADICATED WORLDWIDE IN 1980. SO AND US I WAS BORN IN 1982 AND DIDN’T GET A SMALLPOX ACCENT SO MANY OF US LIVING RHTIG NOW HAVE NEVER BEEN VACCINATED AGAINST SMALLPOX SMALLPOX AND SO IT’S SOMETHING THAT IS OBVIOUSLY AN NCCOERN AND YNGOUER PEOPLE IMMUNO-COMPRESSED PEOPLE CHILDREN ARE AT MOST RISK OF SEVERE DISEASE, BUT EVEN IF IT IS A CHILD MUCH OR DISEASE IN SMALLPOX. THIS IS NOT SMALLPOX IN THE GENERAL FAMILY BUT IT IS MUCH MORE MILD AND THE TTHA STRAINS WE ARE SEEING COMING OUT AT LEAST IN THE UKRE A MORE ON THE LEFT REGARDING DEATH RATE YOU KNOW LOOKING AROUND A 1% AGAINST THIS MONKEYPOX CAN HAVE A DEATH RATE OF MORE THAN 0% 1 AND CERTAIN STRAINS. SO YOU KNOW, YES THIS IS SOMETHING TO WATCH BUT LIKE I SAID IT’S SOMETHING WE JUST NEED TO KEEP A COOL HEAD ABOUT IT AND AND ARE NOT WORRIED. DOES THIS MEAN SHOULD YOU CONSIDER GETTING A SMALLPOX VACCINATION? DO YOU WANT TO GET ONE FOR YOURSELF? NO, I AM NOTET GNG A VARIOLA VACCINATION AND WILL WAIT FOR MORE INFORMATION TO COME FROM PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS BASED ON THE CONCERN THAT CONTACT TRACING FOR THIS IS GNGOIO BE MUCH EASIER THAN TRACING FOR CONTACTS FOR COVID. LET’S SAY THEY ‘GOINGRE TOE B ABLE TO I THINK GET THIS, YOU KNOW, THIS VIRUS ON MHUC BETTER CE.AR I WANT TO THINK OF EBOLA, YOU KNOW WHEN WE BROUGHT IT IN PATIENTS. ABOUT EBOLA, WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LOCK THIS IN VERY WELL. SO A VERY EASILY SPREAD RESPIRATORY DISEASE THAT HAS NO SYMPTOMS. THIS IS HOW COVID SPREADS SO FAST AND I THINK THAT’S WHAT GENDER WE ALL ARE WHERE TACKLING THIS VIRUS IS VERY DIFFERENT AND CONTACT TRACING AND ALL THE NORMAL THINGS PEOPLE DO FOR HEALTH WILL WORK VERY WELL TO LIMIT THE SPREAD OF THIS VIRUS. OKAY. WELL, THANK YOU FOR THIS GOOD INFORMATION TO CALM PEOPLE’S FEARS M HEAY YOU KNOW THAT EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED IN ABOUT 24 HOURS. I mean it was 24 hours. AND SO YOU KNOW, OF COURSE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE I” SOMEONE WHO TRAVELED FROM AN AREA YOU KNOW HAD SITO’S IT’S YEAH. OKAY. WELL, WE APPRECIATE YOUR TIME ONCE AGAIN, AND ESPECIALLY YOU HAVE HELPED US A LOT DURING THE LAST THREE TWO TWO THREE YEARS IN THE PANDEMIC DR. WALKER. THANK YOU
