Monkeypox: The myths, misconceptions — and facts — about how you catch it
NPR, August 5, 2022
Sexual contact is not the only way monkeypox is spread, points out infectious disease doctor Susan McLellan at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. But she agrees that it is by far the most likely way in this current outbreak,
so far. “Epidemiological data for the outbreak in Western Europe and the United States makes that clear,” she said. “We're not detecting many cases in kids and individuals who aren't sexually active. We're detecting cases mostly
in individuals from networks with a lot of sexual encounters."
