Now that monkeypox is in Connecticut, should we be worried?
The Connecticut Department of Public Health on Tuesday reported the first case of monkeypox in the state. The man in his 40s is isolating at his home in New Haven County.
Dr. Jessica Holzer, a University of New Haven professor of epidemiology, spoke with "All Things Considered" about whether Connecticut residents should be worried about monkeypox.
While she’s not surprised about the disease reaching Connecticut, Dr. Holzer said that monkeypox is not COVID-19.
