NY POST: The Biden Administration declared a health emergency over the growing Monkeypox outbreak Thursday.

The declaration allows the federal government to amp up its response to the virus without the usual regulatory barriers.

“I want to make an announcement today that I will be declaring a public health emergency,” Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra said in a call with reporters Thursday about the monkeypox outbreak.

“We’re prepared to take our response to the next level in addressing this virus.”

“We urge every American to take monkey pox seriously and to take responsibility and help us tackle this virus,” he continued.

The US is slated to declare a state of emergency as Monkey pox cases continue to rise.

While a bunch of articles are saying its not but it is and also why they don’t point out that San Francisco is the hot spot right now and under a state of emergency….
