First cases of monkeypox in children in U.S. confirmed – The Washington Post

The first two U.S. cases of monkeypox in children have been confirmed as part of a record outbreak of more than 2,800 infections nationwide, a top health official said Friday.

The pediatric cases, detected this week in an infant and a toddler, are likely the result of household transmission, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky disclosed the development in a Washington Post Live interview Friday.

CDC and public health authorities are still investigating how the children became infected. The two cases are unrelated and in different jurisdictions, the agency said in a statement. The toddler is in California; the infant’s case was confirmed while the family was traveling in Washington, D.C., but they are not residents of this country.

Walensky, in her interview, said the cases link back to individuals who come from the men who have sex with men community. But the investigations are ongoing to “know or understand” the connection to that community, another CDC official said.

“While both children have monkeypox symptoms, they are in good health,” and receiving an antiviral treatment for the disease, the CDC said.
