Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, has called on the government to “rapidly ensure that an appropriately coordinated and resourced approach” is taken to combat the monkeypox outbreak.
He also offered his full support in ensuring that appropriate prevention and testing, as well as assessment and treatment, can be “delivered without delay.” His letter, which was sent to the newly appointed Health Secretary, Steve Barclay, on 15 July, also highlighted the growing number of monkeypox cases across the country.
As of 11 July, there were 1,735 laboratory confirmed cases in the UK, according to the UK Health Security Agency. London is currently seeing the highest rates of infection, with the number of reported cases more than doubling in just six days.
