WH announces new strategies against monkeypox

The White House announced new strategies to combat the monkeypox outbreak on Thursday. The Biden-Harris Administration has delivered nearly 1 million doses of the Bavarian Nordic's JYNNEOS vaccine to jurisdictions, which is the largest JYNNEOS vaccine program in the world.

The country will also make 1.8 million doses of the same vaccine, which is to be administered intradermally to individuals who are eighteen years of age and older.

The US has also expanded the capacity of orthopoxvirus tests from 6,000 tests per week to 80,000 tests per week. The TPOXX treatment will be more accessible soon with additional 50,000 courses of antiviral treatment in the making.
