Chicago MPV (Monkeypox) Case Summary

Chicago MPV (Monkeypox) Case Details


  • Sex refers to sex assigned at birth
  • Gender and sexual orientation are self-reported at the time of care or during interview with CDPH staff
  • Some information about cases may be classified as unknown because the case did not provide it or because the case has not yet been reached for interview.

Cases of MPV (Monkeypox) are reported to the Chicago Department of Public Health by laboratories and healthcare providers through the Illinois National Electronic Disease Surveillance System (I-NEDSS). Confirmed and probable cases, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), among Chicago residents are included in the tables and figures above. Cases are counted based on the day the first positive specimen was collected.

Race/ethnicity, sex, gender, and sexual orientation may be collected from reports by the diagnosing healthcare provider, electronic laboratory reports, and self-reported by cases during interviews with CDPH staff. Self-reported information is prioritized over other sources when available.

All data are provisional and subject to change. Information is updated as additional details are received. The data shown reflect what is known to CDPH at the time when the numbers are updated each week.
