A Monkeypox death in Ohio occurs although number are falling.

According to reports more people are getting the Jynneos monkeypox vaccine. Additionally, the CDC stated they are expanding eligibility for people with higher risk.
The Ohio Monkeypox death is not the first U.S death.
Deaths from monkeypox are extremely rare and often affect babies, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems, such as from HIV. A person in Harris County, Texas, who had monkeypox died last month, but the virus’ role in that death has not been confirmed. A patient in Los Angeles County also passed from the virus due to a weak immune system.
In 2003 the Center for Infectious Disease Research and policy discovered the Monkeypox in rodents.
According to that report, the CDC announced Monkeypox in one Gambian giant rat, three dormice, and two rope squirrels. The animals were part of a shipment of African rodents, previously numbered at about 800, imported into the United States on Apr 9.
