A homeless woman who was detected with monkeypox died, but for other issues, a state official said Wednesday.

State Secretary of Public Health Adrián Medina said the woman also had HIV, other STDs and a head tumor.

According to the state official this is the tenth case of monkeypox reported in Baja California.

The woman was admitted to the General Hospital over the weekend.

Besides the illnesses, the woman had several injuries in the skin presumably caused by sun rays. Sec. Medina said although the woman tested positive to monkeypox, the cause of death was determined to be a respiratory infection.
