Indiana health officials have identified the state’s first possible case of monkeypox. The case was confirmed by the Department of Health on Saturday.
The patient, who has not been identified due to privacy concerns, has been isolated. Health officials are working to find any possibly close contacts of the infected person.
State Health Commissioner Kris Box says the risk of monkeypox among the general public is still extremely low.
This year, the CDC has verified 113 cases of monkeypox in 21 states and territories.
