Mayor Adams Declares Monkeypox State of Emergency

As the number of monkeypox cases in the city continues to increase, Mayor Adams has declared a state of emergency.

“This order will bolster our existing efforts to educate, vaccinate, test, and treat as many New Yorkers as possible and ensure a whole-of-government response to this outbreak,” Adams said.

The city now has more than 1,200 cases of monkeypox. That’s about 25 percent of all infections in the country.

Adams said the feds need to provide the city with more doses of the vaccine.
