Tim Lahey, M.D., M.M.Sc.
(JULY 27, 2022) Professor of Medicine Tim Lahey, M.D., M.M.Sc., said in a story on Vermont Public that "it’s just a matter of time" before the monkeypox virus is found in the Green Mountain State. Part of the virus family related to smallpox, monkeypox is rare - and rarely fatal, with typically much milder symptoms. Everyone has some level of susceptibility to the virus, Lahey said. Guidance on minimizing the spread of this virus may sound familiar: isolate and test.
