Recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that nearly 20% of gay men who are contracting monkeypox in the U.S. reported having sex with several men.

There were 7,509 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the US as of Aug. 6, according to data from the CDC, and roughly 98% of those are among gay/bisexual men.

The overwhelming majority had multiple sexual partners in the weeks leading up to their symptoms.

WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that the transmission seems concentrated among gay/bi men — especially those with multiple sexual partners “this is an outbreak that can be stopped with the right strategies in the right groups.”

More analysis of the growing number of ‘Monkey Fox’ reported by The Daily Caller: 

In addition to the 19% of men who said they had 10 or more partners over the three weeks preceding symptoms, 40% reported having two to four partners and 14% reported five to nine partners. 38% reported having group sex at a festival, group sex event or sex party.
