(Worthy News) – An increasing number of municipalities are declaring health emergencies over monkeypox, with Los Angeles and San Diego issuing declarations this week.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved declaring a local emergency (pdf) over monkeypox on Tuesday. It came as health officials in the county said a child in Long Beach contracted the virus.
“The proclamation of local emergency is to help our county do all that we can to get ahead and stay ahead of this virus,” LA County Board of Supervisors Chair Holly J. Mitchell said. [ Source: NTD (Read More…) ]
Newsom declares monkeypox a state of emergency in Cali after allowing gay, leather kink festival to go ahead
Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday declared the monkeypox outbreak a state of emergency in California, despite a gay, leather kink festival taking place in San Francisco over the weekend – a little more than a year since kids were banned from going back to school due to COVID.
California became the second state in three days to take the step, after New York, and Newsom said the declaration will help state officials better coordinate a government-wide response, seek more vaccines and lead outreach and education efforts on where people can get treatment and vaccination.
‘We’ll continue to work with the federal government to secure more vaccines, raise awareness about reducing risk, and stand with the LGBTQ community fighting stigmatization,’ Newsom said. [ Source: Daily Mail (Read More…) ]
