President Joe Biden said the detection of monkeypox in the United States is "something that everybody should be concerned about."

He made remarks to reporters on Sunday in his first public comments about the disease that has been detected in Europe, the United States, and Australia. 

A rare disease, monkeypox is usually found in Central and West Africa and is detected among those who have traveled there. The first known case of the current monkeypox outbreak was detected in the United Kingdom on May 7 in a person that had traveled to Nigeria.

"They haven't told me the level of exposure yet but it is something that everybody should be concerned about," he added.
