    Hopefully it will be only the one person.

    More than 200 people in 27 US states are being tracked for possible rare monkeypox infections, health officials say.

    They fear people may have come in to contact with a Texas man who brought the disease in from Nigeria earlier this month.

    The man - believed to be the first monkeypox case in the US since 2003 - was taken to hospital but is in a stable condition.

    So far, no new cases have been found.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says it is concerned passengers who were on board two flights the man made may have been exposed to the disease.

    He flew into Atlanta, Georgia from Lagos, Nigeria on 9 July, before taking a flight to Dallas, where he was hospitalised, the CDC said.
