SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Health officials on Tuesday announced that they had identified the fifth presumptive case of monkeypox within Sacramento County.

Sacramento County said health officials are waiting for the CDC to confirm that this was monkeypox, though, the county says that the risk to the public remains low.

Monkeypox symptoms include fever, headache, muscle aches, backaches, swollen lymph nodes, chills, and exhaustion. The illness may last anywhere from two to four weeks. The incubation period is anywhere from 5-21 days but is usually between 7-14 days, health officials said.

European health officials raised the alarm about an outbreak weeks ago, and since then there’ve been hundreds of documented cases in countries that generally don’t see the disease.
