Back in July, Idaho's first case of Monkeypox was reported. Since then, 11 more cases have been confirmed.

Central District Health has been working on raising public awareness about Monkeypox; what it is, how it spreads and who is most at risk.

Sarah Wright, Epidemiologist with CDH, joined Idaho Matters to talk more about the disease.
