News, MPX vaccinations, treatment dramatically slow spread of virus in California : detailed suggestions and opinions about MPX vaccinations, treatment dramatically slow spread of virus in California .
Evidence is continuing to mount that MPX vaccinations and treatments are protecting against further spread of the virus, according to Los Angeles County’s public health director.
For the week that ended Thursday, the county reported a little over 40 new MPX cases. That’s roughly the same as was reported the prior week, but it still represents the fewest number of new cases since the early weeks of the outbreak.
By contrast, during the virus’ apparent peak, more than 300 new cases of MPX — also known as monkeypox — were reported in a single seven-day period.
The decline remains apparent when cases are categorized by “episode date,” which is back-dated to when an MPX patient first had symptoms or got a first positive test. Over the seven-day period that ended Oct. 1, L.A. County recorded just 35 cases — down from 63 the prior week.
