Department of Health launches interactive monkeypox data dashboard

OLYMPIA, Wash – A new interactive monkeypox dashboard aims to expand access to public health information. It includes cases by county, and information on specific demographics.

The MPV dashboard includes the following:

  • Case counts at the state and county levels
  • Total weekly case counts
  • Case information by sex at birth
  • Age groups of people who have MPV

According to dashboard, 7 cases of the virus have been confirmed in Spokane. Over 400 monkeypox shots have been administered since January 1. In addition, most of the vaccines given have been to males between the ages of 18 and 34.

Washington’s Department of Health is working on expanding the dashboard to include the race and ethnicity of communities most effected by monkeypox. DOH says the dashboard will be updated every Tuesday and Thursday.
