Tracking the Outbreak

Learning lessons from the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 and the COVID-19 pandemic, we have launched a new website tracking the reported number of Monkeypox cases in North Carolina using data reported by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) as well as across the United States using data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Monkeypox virus (MPX), a double stranded DNA virus belonging to the orthopoxvirus genus,is endemic in West and Central Africa. In May 2022, reports emerged of growing cases of MPX in Europe and North America with the World Health Organization declaring MPX a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on July 23, 2022.

You can visit the website at https://mpx.wakeforestid.com.

Next Steps

We will be calculating relevant epidemiological metrics such as the effective reproduction number and the doubling time of cases. We anticipate that this website will continue to evolve as our understanding of the current outbreak unfolds.
