 She further said that over time, race and race data have shown a declining number of-non-Hispanic white people contracting monkey-pox and an adding number of-non-Hispanic Black and-non-white Hispanic people testing positive. 

 According to Lewinsky, this compares to roughly 47 of all first boluses being entered by white people, followed by Hispanic people entering 21 of first boluses and Black people entering about 12. 
 “ It's critical that education, vaccinations, testing, and treatment are inversely accessible to all populations but especially those most affected by this outbreak, ” she said.
