Global News on Youtube has the informative stories.

Following the USA move in declaring the spread of monkeypox a public health emergency, Canada is being urged to do the same, as experts are urging more action to be taken to curb the outbreak.

Canada has reported 890 monkeypox cases as of Aug. 3, with Ontario reporting the most cases, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) said on Wednesday. Ontario has reported 423 cases while there are 373 cases in Quebec, 78 in British Columbia, 13 in Alberta, two in Saskatchewan and one in Yukon.
