TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) – A day after monkeypox was declared a public health emergency, advocates say the additional resources can’t come fast enough. The vaccine is still very limited and cases are spreading quickly.

New Jersey health officials say the monkeypox outbreak is happening at the worst time, the height of summer vacations when people flock to the Jersey Shore.

They say the majority of monkeypox cases are in the northeastern part of the Garden State.

“The risk to the public remains low, but anyone who has contact with a person with monkeypox can get the virus,” Darby McDermot said.

Monkeypox causes rashes and flu-like symptoms. Officials say it’s still mainly being diagnosed among gay men who get infected through close personal contact but can also spread with objects.

“It is very easily transmissible through contact, through towels at the beach, through bedding,” Kathy Ahearn with the Hyacinth Foundation said.

There are now over 7,000 cases nationwide.

“It was one of the most painful experiences in my life,” patient Luke Brown said.

With a national public health emergency declared, more resources, like money and manpower, will be directed to fighting the outbreak.

“Hopefully, it will also speed up the vaccine production,” Sarah Bass said.

Nationally, 600,000 doses of the vaccine have been distributed and an additional 150,00 are expected in September, but that’s still not enough.

“About 1.6 million Americans are in that high-risk group that needs to be, that should get vaccinated,” White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha said.

To stretch supplies, many locations, like Philadelphia, are only providing one, instead of the recommended two doses, and only giving the vaccine to those at highest risk.

Federal officials are now considering allowing one, one-dose vial of the vaccine to administer up to give separate doses.

For some, the vaccine can’t come soon enough.

“I just got my results today that said monkeypox was detected which I already knew,” Larry Jackson said.

America’s worst airports for cancelations revealed: LaGuardia and Newark Liberty top the table with 11.5% and 10.2% of all flights called off

LaGuardia and Newark Liberty top the table of America's worst airports for flight cancelations, according to new data. 

Forbes Advisor has compiled the figures from FlightAware which reveal that nearly 2,000 flights were canceled this week across 10 airports. 

And the publication also revealed that by July of this year, more flights had been canceled than in the whole of 2021. 

This week, 11.5 per cent of flights were canceled at LaGuardia airport, while Newark saw 10.2 per cent of journeys grounded.  

It comes as Americans continue to face huge problems travelling across the US due to unprecedented post-pandemic demand and staff shortages. 

Hundreds of flights have already been canceled and large queues have been photographed as Americans try and get away on summer breaks.

Staff shortages also saw almost 1,300 Southwest Airline pilots line up outside the Dallas Love Field Airport as they protested in June and called for better treatment as they faced fatigue and stress caused by the issue.  

The Flight Aware data reveals that as the Summer season continues, there appears to be no let up in the number of canceled and delayed flights, which have also been caused by pilot shortages.

Elsewhere, of the 2,916 scheduled at Reagan National Airport, 264 were canceled, or 9.1 per cent of flights. 

And at Chicago Midway International, of the 1,309 flights, 74 failed to take off- 7.9 per cent.  

Meanwhile, Chicago O'Hare International had 457 of its 3,320 weekly flights canceled- 6.5 per cent. 

Drawing equal, both Baltimore and Washington International had 109 of their 1,979 flights canceled, or 5.5 per cent.

At John Glenn Columbus International Airport, 43 of the destination's 820 flights were grounded, a total of 5.2 per cent. 

And taking the last three spots on the list of the worst 10 American airports for cancelations were Raleigh-Durham International, Pittsburgh International and Cleveland-Hopkins International.

At Raleigh-Durham, 59 of the scheduled 1,149 flights for the week failed to take off, a figure of 5.1 per cent. 

Pittsburgh International had 47 of its 934 journeys canceled, or 5 per cent. And Cleveland-Hopkins International had 40 of its 796 flights grounded, also 5 per cent.

Elsewhere, the data revealed that nearly half of all flights leaving from Chicago Midway International were delayed upon arrival at their destination. 

Chicago Midway International had 796 delayed flights out of 1,855 scheduled- almost 47 per cent.

And at Baltimore and Washington respectively, 40 per cent of arrivals were delayed.   

The FlightAware data defines an arrival delay as an aircraft that arrives 15 minutes or more later than its scheduled time. The delay is attributed to the origin airport. 

Baltimore and Washington airports took the second spot on the list, with 749 flights out of 1,979 scheduled delayed, or 40.1 per cent. 

At tenth on the list, Orlando International experienced the least delays last week, 29.7 per cent of the 3,253 scheduled flights, or 602.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, pictured, who previously urged airports to sort out the chaos ahead of the July 4 holiday, was forced to drive from Washington DC to New York in June 

The chaos has even affected Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg who was forced to drive from Washington D.C. to New York in June.

And one Emergency Room nurse from Pittsburgh said in June that her trip home from Italy lasted about 60 hours, noting to WTAE: 'There were no delays until I got into the States.'

Luray Hixson said she got stuck for nearly two days at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport, explaining: 'The flight itself was changed nine times, with the gates.

'There were other Pittsburghers around who were following,' she said, and 'we were moved from terminal to terminal, which these terminals were nowhere near each other; we had to take shuttles to get to these other places to get your flight.'

After her longest delay, which was a whopping 12 hours long, Hixson said her flight was ultimately canceled.

Fortunately, she said, her mother was willing to pick her up from the airport and drive her six hours to get home.

Now, she says, she's not sure if she will fly again in the near future, saying: 'This is becoming the norm.'
