Coronavirus news LIVE – Two MONKEYPOX cases found in UK along with drug-resistant tuberculosis outbreak, Hancock says

THE UK is “dealing with” an outbreak of monkeypox, Matt Hancock has revealed.

The health secretary did not give any details of where cases were, or how many. But The Sun has been told there are two cases in North Wales.

The first case caught the virus abroad before passing it onto someone in the same house.

They were admitted to a hospital in England, where one remains.

Both are being monitored by Public Health Wales and Public Health England.

The cases would be only the fifth and sixth cases ever recorded in the UK.
