‘Not enough vaccines, test results delayed for days, and people cancelling Pride plans’ - monkeypox fears are building as the number of cases in Greater Manchester are on the rise.

Experts have expressed concerns about similar mass gatherings of people causing upticks in cases, amid a 'stay at home' warning as the ever-popular Pride event fast approaches.

The virus has so far been concentrated in gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM). But Manchester borough only started off with a small supply of vaccines, receiving an initial supply of just 240 allocated to the region earlier this month, in comparison to thousands of jabs already given out in London, the Manchester Evening News understands.
