On my way to #JSM2022. I’m so excited to get to see my statistician colleagues in Washington DC. I’ll be tweeting here and on behalf of @DataSciJedi (a very cool account 😎). Let me know if you’ll be there too! I’d love to meet up with folks. ☺️ #JEDIatJSM

U.S. monkeypox update:

New cases: +310
Total cases: 8,305

New cases continue to rise and positivity rate is very high, reflecting under testing. A lot of testing capacity going unused; we must broaden testing criteria to identify more of the ongoing community spread @BNOFeed


- 99% of cases were among men
- 94% reported male-to-male sexual or close contact in 3 wks before symptoms
- 42% didn't report prodrome as their first symptom; 46% had 1+ genital lesions
- 41% were HIV-positive
- 74% locally acquired
