STD Rate In California Hits New High: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis Worst Culprits
More than 300,000 cases of Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and early syphilis were reported: a 45 percent increase compared to five years ago, according to the state. Young women have the highest rates of chlamydia, while men have the highest rates of syphilis and gonorrhea.
AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) launched its latest national outdoor advertising and awareness campaign with new billboards raising an alarm and offering a 'Gonorrhea Alert' about drug-resistant strains of the sexually transmitted disease-including a case of what has been referred to as 'super gonorrhea' reported to the World Health Organization (WHO) by physicians in the United Kingdom earlier this year. In total, there were 75,560 cases in 2017, representing a 16 percent increase from the year before, making the rate 190.5 cases per 100,000 Californians.
There were 30 syphilis-related stillbirths in California in 2017, the highest since 1997.
In terms of which STD Butte County has the most of, that answer is Chlamydia.
Right decision to leave Joe Hart at home
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere and Manchester City's on-loan goalkeeper Joe Hart are expected to be omitted from Gareth Southgate's England squad when the Three Lions boss names his World Cup party on Wednesday.
Rates for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis have been rising nationally for several years.
Chlamydia can be transmitted by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex, affecting both men and women.
Adding to the problem, says Dr. Heidi Bauer, chief of the state health department's STD Control Branch, is the fact that many Californians have been steered away from getting their health treatment at public clinics, and into private practice via the Affordable Care Act. "Seeing it come back like this is a sign of failure of the public health safety net", Dr. Jeffery Klausner, a professor of medicine of the University of California, Los Angeles, told the Associated Press.
Here's what you should know about this record-breaking number.
The report showed there were 218,710 cases of chlamydia and 75,450 cases of gonorrhea previous year.
Syphilis can cause permanent loss of vision, hearing and other neurological problems. Additionally, an infected mother can spread syphilis to her unborn baby. The syphilis rate for African-Americans were two times higher.
