a Previously Reported Texas Patient Death A spokeswoman for the Houston-area Harris Health System said the number of patients believed to have monkeypox remains unidentified.

But federal health officials had warned that the number of severe infections and hospitalizations was rising as the virus spread to more vulnerable groups, including homeless people and highly untreated HIV-infected people.

Cases occur mainly among men who have sex with men, federal data suggesting that the majority of new cases are now in non-Caucasian patients.

“When people are severely immunocompromised, they don’t have the ability to clear the virus on their own,” CDC’s Agam Rao said at the ID Week meeting on Wednesday.

Those cases were being treated with tecovirimato, an experimental antiviral drug used to treat severe monkeypox cases, Rao said.

“It slows down replication. But the immune system still needs to be one that eliminates the actual virus,” Rao said.
