LOS ANGELES -- The United States tripled its monkeypox cases in just 15 days after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recorded 1,424 additional cases on Monday, the highest daily count since the outbreak in the country in May.
As of Monday, the United States had the world's most number of confirmed cases of monkeypox, which stood at 8,934. It is likely that the figure is a undercount because of the lack of testing. (US-Monkeypox)
