Public Health Ontario is reporting 230 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the province.
The agency said the vast majority of the cases are appearing in Toronto with 172 infections in the city.
Public health said most cases are among men who report intimate contact with men, but say anyone can get monkeypox and one of the confirmed cases is in a female.
The report said nine people have been hospitalized with the illness and one person has been in intensive care.
Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore recently said monkeypox will likely be around for many months because of its lengthy incubation period, but noted that the province isn’t seeing rapid growth of the virus.
