Michigan Health Department launches website focused on monkeypox
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services launched a website to keep residents up-to-date on information surrounding monkeypox.
The website provides information on the signs and symptoms of the virus, the number of cases in the state, information about testing and treatment, and more.
“MDHHS is working closely with our federal partners, local health departments and health care providers across the state in response to this outbreak,” said Dr. Natasha Bagdasarian, MDHHS chief medical executive. “MPV is a viral illness that spreads primarily through direct contact with the infectious rash, scabs, bodily fluids or prolonged face-to-face contact. It is important to remember that the risk to the general public is low. However, Michiganders with concerns about MPV should see their provider to be evaluated for testing.”
