Play • 11 min

California is the latest state to declare a state of emergency over the monkeypox outbreak. The CDC says more than 6,600 U.S. cases of monkeypox have been reported since May, and as that number grows so does pressure for more government action.

Guests: Axios' Tina Reed, Arielle Dreher, and Courtenay Brown.
