May 25, 2022

Two new suspected cases of monkeypox and one probable case of the virus were reported in Toronto on Wednesday, bringing the total number of cases being investigated in the city to four.

Toronto Public Health said all three of the newly reported cases are men — two in their 30s and one in their 20s — and they are “doing well.”

One of the three men had traveled to Montreal and was a contact of the first suspected case Toronto Public Health said it was investigating in the city over the weekend.

That first case involved a man in his 40s who had contact with someone who had recently travelled to Montreal. The agency said Wednesday that the first case was now considered a probable case.

According to a Ministry of Health order, cases can be classified as confirmed, probable, suspected, not meeting the definition of the virus or “epi-linked.”
