Two more cases of monkeypox have been identified in Wyoming.

The Wyoming Department of Health reported Tuesday that new cases have confirmed in a Natrona County adult man and a Campbell County adult man. The state health department said the the cases are not connected and additional risk to local communities is not considered to be significantly increased at this time.

Monkeypox spreads through close, intimate contact with someone who is infected with the virus.

The unpleasant symptoms include rashes and lesions along ever, chills, headache, muscle aches and tiredness. Monkeypox is rarely fatal painful and can cause serious illness in some people.

The disease broke out earlier this year in the global homosexual community and has generally been confined to that group. The vaccine is typically available only to the non-straight community because of the social trends associated with the outbreak.

Despite these basic facts, the World Health Organization tried and failed to delink the virus from the gay community. The WHO’s attempt to rename the virus this summer also failed.

Wyoming was the last state in the nation to report monkeypox infections. The latest two cases join two others. The first was in Cheyenne and the second in Jackson. Both victims were identified by the state heath department as adult men.
