CDC decides on Monkey Pox cause

The CDC has decided (according to an article from the Washington Post) that the source of the current Monkey Pox outbreak in the US is a set of imported rodents from Ghana.

In order to quell the outbreak, it has ordered that the 818 rodents in the shipment (including Gambian giant pouched rats, dormice and rope squirrels) as well as any prairie dogs that might have come into contact with them be destroyed.
