This past weekend the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Ghebreyesus, declared monkeypox to be a “public health emergency of international concern.” Today, Politico indicated from their sources that the Biden Administration’s Health & Human Services is expected as soon as at the end of this week to also declare monkeypox a public health emergency.
