U.S. President Joe Biden plans to declare monkeypox a national emergency, possibly as soon as Thursday, August 4, 2022, The New York Times reports.
The action follows the World Health Organization's July 23, 2022 declaration of the disease as a global emergency. A similar declaration in the U.S. would "signal that the outbreak now represents a significant threat to Americans and set in motion a variety of measures devised to turn the tide," the Times said.
The declaration would enable access to emergency funding for additional workers to manage the outbreak, as well as speed up vaccines and treatment capabilities.
