Cases of monkeypox are on the rise in Canada, part of an ongoing global outbreak.
The viral illness, which often presents as a flu-like infection with a rash, is spread through close personal contact with people with a symptomatic case. Vaccines are offered to those most at risk.
The World Health Organization declared monkeypox a public health emergency of international concern on July 23.
The Public Health Agency of Canada is tracking publicly reported cases across the country, updating the number of confirmed monkeypox infections in each province and territory on a weekly basis.
The federal numbers do not distinguish between active and recovered cases, although PHAC says it continues to collect and analyze epidemiological information on the number of infections in this country.
Here are the number of known cases of monkeypox in Canada.
