A second case of monkeypox has been confirmed in the city, Toronto Public Health (TPH) says.

On Tuesday, the health unit announced another case that has been lab confirmed while six others are currently being investigated.

The city reported its first confirmed case of the disease last Thursday.

There have been nine negative cases of monkeypox in Toronto.

Monkeypox is a rare disease that comes from the same family of viruses that causes smallpox, which the World Health Organization declared eradicated around the globe in 1980, but monkeypox generally does not spread easily between people and is transmitted through prolonged close contact.
