Abstract: We analyze the first-digit distribution of Monkeypox daily cases in the United States of America, from May 17 to September 21, 2022. As expected for the spread of infectious diseases, the overall data follow Benford's law. Moreover, we find that the temporal series of daily cases conforms to the Benford's distribution to an exceptionally high confidence level.
