Canada reports 77 confirmed cases of monkeypox, almost entirely spread in gay community

State Media: 'Canada now has 77 confirmed cases of monkeypox, according to figures supplied Friday by Canada's chief public health officer and Santé Québec, the provincial health ministry.

'Of the cases identified so far through laboratory testing, 71 are from Quebec, five are from Ontario and one is from Alberta.

'The figure is more than 15 times higher than the five confirmed cases the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) reported nationwide late last month.

'While a disproportionate number of cases in this monkeypox outbreak have shown up among gay and bisexual men, Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam told reporters Friday that all groups are potentially susceptible to the virus.'
