Experts worry monkeypox is here to stay

Monkeypox emerged over the summer as a surprise threat …. But University of California, Irvine [associate] professor of population health Andrew Noymer said it’s nowhere near the threat of COVID-19, especially as cases are expected to spike in the winter. … “It remains to be seen whether we’re in a continued decline or if we’ve plateaued,” he said. … Noymer worries that the case numbers are high enough that it’ll never completely disappear in the United States.
