1st Woman in GA to get Monkeypox Says it Didn’t Come from Sexual Contact … but Work (video)

A woman in Dekalb County, GA named Camile Seaton is coming forward with her story to help others. She has contracted the Monkeypox virus and she is warning others about how she believes she contracted it.

She states it did not come from having sex as the media has consistently stated is the way to catch it. It is also widely believed that the LGBT community is the most affected by it which at this time doctors say is true, but Camile says she did not get it from having sex but she believes she got it at work.

She is a cashier at a gas station and she believes she got it by touching money and then touching her face. She is in the final stages of the disease after having to isolate herself for 30 days to prevent further spreading and she describes her experience and going to the emergency room after seeing the lesions on her face. Ways to catch Monkeypox are:

  • Through direct contact with the infectious rash, scabs or body fluids.
  • Through respiratory secretions during prolonged face-to-face contact or during intimate physical contact like kissing cuddling or sex
  • By touching items like clothing or linens that previously touched the infectious rash or body fluids (uncommon)
  • Sharing towels or bedding with an infected person
  • Other forms of skin-to-skin contact

The Georgia Department of Public Health said that the risk for contracting the illness through passing encounters with money or a door handle is low and non-healthcare settings like schools, grocery stores, workplaces and public transportation are not considered high-risk settings for transmission.
