July 13, 2022 – (Tarrant County)– Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) says the second Monkeypox case in the state. Our Epidemiology Division team has confirmed that the two cases in the region are those of older men. The second case is the result of an exposure in the Dallas-Fort Worth area with no travel history at the time of exposure, indicating a specific spread in the DFW metroplex. According to the TCPH second case investigation, there was no further evidence. In addition, TCPH has received notification of a third case and is awaiting further confirmation of citizenship in Tarrant County. At present, most people are considered low-risk. TCPH will continue to work with local, state and local government agencies to monitor the situation.
Monkeypox can be spread by contact with body fluids, tumors, or other substances contaminated with water by a person with monkeys such as sleeping. Monkeypox can also spread through respiratory droplets to nearby people after a long exposure (3 hours). Symptoms of nyanipox can include rash, fever, inflammation of the lymph nodes, and pain.
Crime cases have grown across the country in heterosexual groups. Monkeypox not only affects people with sexual orientation, yet recent events across the country have been followed by gay men (MSM). People who are at high risk of contracting monkeys should be aware of their risks and get appropriate treatment if they show signs of monkeys.
