Men’s Health quoted Thomas A. Russo, MD, SUNY Distinguished Professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases, for a story on monkeypox, a rare virus that isn’t considered to be highly infectious. But experts say that the latest string of cases is puzzling. “There’s a lot we don’t know at this point,” said Russo. “There may be some new epidemiology and new modes of transmission that we don’t understand. We need to sort that out.” Yahoo Life! also distributed the story.
