EL PASO, Texas -- Health experts discuss what the first confirmed case of Monkey Pox means for El Paso.

"We knew this was gonna happen eventually just like with SARS-COVID 2 it happened in a lot of places around the country and eventually got to El Paso," said Ogechika Alozie E.O at Sunset West Health.

"This is not airborne this is close physical contact up till now 98 to 99 percent of the person's who've gotten this have been men// the majority of El Pasoans aren't at risk for this," said Alozie.

"I think that's pretty crazy I mean we aren't even really out of the woods with covid yet we're still getting cases with that and then now we have Monkeypox coming up so it's honestly kind of scary," said El Pasoan Scott Turner.

Alozie added Monkeypox unlike COVID is spread through tighter social networks with close physical contact on average of 3 hours.

"Public Health officials confirmed that a female in her 50s is the community’s first confirmed Monkeypox case.

“Monkeypox continues to be a global threat and for this reason, we strongly recommend everyone continue practicing safety precautions to keep themselves and their family, especially our most vulnerable loved ones, safe from all diseases, whether it is COVID, Monkeypox, or the flu,” said City-County Health Authority Dr.
