In July, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned that preliminary evidence suggests that children under the age of 8 may develop a more serious illness if they are infected with monkeypox.

Data from the agency shows 18,989 cases of monkeypox and orthopoxviruses across the country.

Cases have been discovered in all 50 states. Most cases are reported in New York and California, with 3,310 and 3,629 respectively.
