China News Service, June 23. According to a report by the Associated Press on the 22nd, the U.S. government has recently stepped up its monkeypox testing efforts, including starting to distribute monkeypox test samples to commercial laboratories to speed up the process of testing suspected cases of monkeypox.

The data map shows the mature oval-shaped monkeypox virus particles and the crescent-shaped and spherical immature virus particles under the electron microscope.

  Previously, the tests were mainly done by public health laboratories, with a capacity of about 8,000 tests per week, according to reports.

  As of June 21, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported 142 cases of monkeypox infection.

  U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Becerra said that "all Americans should be concerned about monkeypox cases" and that by increasing the number of testing sites across the country, anyone who needs it can be tested.

  Monkeypox is a viral zoonotic disease caused by infection with the monkeypox virus.

Monkeypox virus can be transmitted from animals to humans through close contact and through close contact with virus-contaminated materials such as bedding.

The initial symptoms of monkeypox infection in humans include fever, headache, muscle aches, back pain, and swollen lymph nodes, which can later develop into a widespread rash on the face and body.

Most patients recover within a few weeks, but others become seriously ill and may die.

People such as children, pregnant women, and the immunocompromised are at higher risk.
