The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released data findings the outbreak of monkeypox is concentrated among men who have had sex with multiple men, and issued more detailed recommendations on how to avoid exposure to the disease.

Among 291 men surveyed, 40% reported having two to four partners and 14% reported five to nine partners in the three weeks before developing monkeypox, according to the report. About 19% reported 10 or more partners during that period, the CDC said Friday.
