public health emergency. it's supposed to boost the country's response to the outbreak. the u.s. has 7,100 confirmed cases. jessi turnure has more from washington, d.c.. good morning. this announcement will free up money and other resources to help control the virus at a time when many states are having trouble keeping up with demand for vaccines. >> they're working hard to contain it while the u.s. remains under a public health emergency for covid-19, the biden administration declared another one thursday for a different virus. monkeypox. it is really i think the real time dimitri daskalakis is helping lead the national response to monkeypox, which has now infected more than 7,000 americans. the most important thing is to let people who have the knowledge and how about box transmit. the virus spreads through skin to skin contact and sharing bedding towels and clothing. patients have been primarily men who have with men. but health officials stress the virus can infect anyone could clear messaging to people
about how to prevent infection without drives. are there. there that the declaration comes amid criticism from major cities over monkeypox vaccine availability. some of that to stop offering the second dose to ensure supply of first doses. as soon as we saw that this outbreak was different. >> in transmitting much more rapidly. we quickly moved to order tens of thousands of more doses. white house press secretary karine jean pierre said the administration has made more than a million doses available and boosted the processing of tests to 80,000 per week. the declaration should help the federal government better track who is infected and vaccinated. but texas senator ted cruz called the announcement a purely political. they want to change the topic away. >> from their failed domestic agenda. >> and last week, the world health organization called monkeypox a public health emergency with cases in more than 70 countries. no one in the u.s. has died, but a few deaths have been reported in
other countries in washington. i'm jessi tenure. >> all right. thank you, jesse. meanwhile, back here in california, lawmakers are calling on the state to do more to slow the spread of monkeypox. so far, there are more than 800 cases across the state. we have state senator scott wiener who represents san francisco saying the governor took a big step by declaring a state of emergency, but he says more still needs to be done. he sent the governor a letter calling on him to approve 38 million dollars to help with monkeypox at the local level. >> to support county public health departments which are responsible, expanding testing vaccination and community outreach. we need to make sure the counties but their public health departments have the support that they need. >> well, senator wiener has been chosen to chair a brand new monkeypox select committee. that committee is trying to come up with guidelines and resources for the entire state members of the committee are going have their first meeting come next tuesday. california and san francisco department of health, by the way, are also
considering a different smallpox vaccine to try and treat monkeypox. this vaccine is called a cam 2000. it was a smallpox vaccine that was approved back in 2007. there's about 100 million doses of its stored in the strategic national stockpile. and the state has request to 100 of those shots. they're working right now are we are anyway to try and figure out when those shots should arrive here in the bay area. >> the entire bay area, as you might know, is dealing with a shortage of monkeypox vaccines. but san mateo county, they don't have any shot clinics for monkeypox at all. kron four's dan kerman explains why. >> well, limited numbers of vaccine has led to long lines and a handful of san francisco monkeypox clinics and san mateo county. there are no monkeypox clinics at all. i'm sure detail county can set up their own clinic say they did it for covid-19 and you're getting up to that city's patrick is and lives in san mateo county. he says he can't get through to the public health department and staff members of this county supervisor's office have told
them to go wait in line in san francisco because san mateo county is sending its vaccine down their game are being pushed off the side, at least in san mateo county, which which i find very concerning. >> it reminds me very much of the age, a pandemic when that first started and how we were ignored. >> we recognize that we're in an evolving situation that's really challenging and sympathize with the questions and the concerns are working toward having the opportunity to get information from that. >> mark mellman is the director of public health policy and planning for the san mateo county public health department. he says vaccine doses are being sent to san francisco because they believe many of their at risk residents seek health care there. he also says some of the vaccine has been doled out to major health care systems in the county. but he knows more needs to be done. we are working on having an opportunity through our website for people to indicate their interest to filling out a short survey.
>> and so that identifying them as individuals at so that we are able to that contact them as vaccine becomes available and again, yes, if they indicate through that process that they're connected with health care providers has the vaccine will try and help make that connection. and if not, then we will work on setting up some clinics that can get the vaccine to folks that don't have that pathway, patrick hope. san mateo county changes that system quickly. it seems the county needs to get in front of this and say, hey, we do have our doses. let's give these doses out. and if there's extra. >> you know what? that's great. invite people from san francisco to come down. san mateo county, dan kerman kron. 4 news. >> the san francisco aids foundation is looking for health ceers to help administer monkeypox shots. they say they have to be authorized and trained to give the vaccines to volunteer. you can contact the organization if you're interested.
