News Tech: SEATTLE (AP) — An infant in Washington’s most populous county has become infected with the monkeypox virus as the outbreak grows throughout the state.

State Secretary of Health Dr. Umair A. Shah said while the threat of infection to the general public remains low, recent pediatric cases serve as a reminder that anyone can become sick.

Public health leaders held a media briefing Thursday to call attention to the seriousness of the disease, The Seattle Times reported.

This week, Public Health – Seattle & King County said it had confirmed a second case of monkeypox in an infant. Officials said the infant in the latest case likely contracted it from an infected family member. The baby is hospitalized, stable and receiving treatment, county officials said.

As of Thursday, the state has confirmed 392 monkeypox cases, including 318 in King County. No one has died from the virus in Washington. Several people have been hospitalized for treatment, officials said.
