The rare viral disease – is usually found in West and Central Africa.  – has been quickly spreading across countries and more and more continue to report cases every day. As Monkeypox cases surface, monkeypox stocks are quickly gaining a lot of traction from investors. 

Experts state that the actual number of cases is far greater than the 306 confirmed cases, the Biden administration is currently working on sending tens of thousands of vaccine doses all over the country. 

Up till now, only one vaccination – Jynneos vaccine – is approved by the federal regulators. However, companies such as SIGA Technologies (NASDAQ: SIGA), Co-Diagnostics, Inc.
