Florida officials have reported the state's first case of monkeypox in a child under four years old - the seventh in the nation overall - as fears the virus will spread into more vulnerable groups continue to grow.

Martin County, around 100 miles north of Miami along the Sunshine state's east coast, reported the case in an unnamed child on Monday.

One was reported by officials in Maine on Friday, while others were confirmed in California, Indiana and in a non-resident traveling through Washington D.C.

While cases so far are mostly concentrated among gay and bisexual men in the nation's monkeypox outbreak, anyone is vulnerable to infection.

has recorded 11,890 confirmed infections, the most of any country in the world, including 713 on Monday.

With the rampant spread of the virus in recent weeks it is likely that more cases in young children will likely be found.

Florida is one of the leading states in confirmed monkeypox infections, having recorded 1,085 as of Monday afternoon. .

Confirmed infections in the Sunshine state spiked last week, increasing from 633 on Monday, August 8 to reaching the four figure mark by Wednesday, August 17.

Only two other states have recorded more than 1,000 confirmed cases.

Texas will likely join the dubious group this week, as the Longhorn state sits at 992 cases as of Monday afternoon.

Dr Joseph Eisenberg, an epidemiologist at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, said in an interview last week that he believes the erupting virus will become the next pandemic in the US, but not reach the same heights as COVID-19. .

Brouwer does think the increased attention on the virus is helping fight it, though, making the average person more aware of its spread and how to spot a potential case.
