The OSDH (Oklahoma State Department of Health) just released a statement that reported the first probable case of Monkeypox in the state of Oklahoma. A Central Oklahoma resident could possibly have the virus OSDH is currently working with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) on the case.

The unidentified patient could have been exposed to the virus after traveling internationally to a country that has had confirmed cases.
