STDs at all-time high: CDC warns syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia sexually transmitted disease cases reach record high

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released final data on sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in California in 2018.

The rate of gonorrhea cases in particular hit a 28-year high, with 583,405 cases reported. Amid record STD rates, doctors treat patients' partner's sight unseen Amid record STD rates, doctors treat patients' partner's sight unseen A rise within the prevalence and incidence of STDs will come with serious public health consequences and considerations, as well as sterility, drug-resistant social disease, and non-heritable syphilis, which may cause crib death.

According to a 2018 STD Surveillance Report from the CDC, combined cases of syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia reached an all-time high in the United States past year with more than 2.4 million cases.

It's the most ever reported in a year, though the trend is mainly attributed to increased testing. About 35,000 cases of the most contagious forms of the disease were reported - also the most since 1991.

It said GM's annual costs in wages and benefits are more than $1 billion higher than foreign automakers operating USA plants. Dittes said that he did not know when the five issues would be resolved, suggesting a final deal may not be close.

Virginia Bowen, an epidemiologist at the CDC, said social, cultural and economic factors may contribute to increases in reported STD cases.

The CDC found that five states were responsible for 70-percent of the congenital syphilis cases in newborns previous year: Louisiana, Florida, Arizona, Texas, and California.

The increases coincided with public health funding cuts and clinic closures. Without early and regular prenatal care, a pregnant woman may not know she has syphilis and may unknowingly put her baby is at risk.

San Joaquin County health officials replanted the department and appealed for grants to increase the number of investigators available as congenital syphilis spiked, said Hemal Parikh, county coordinator for STD control. A new bulletin by the CDC paints a particularly dire picture of sexual health in the United States, with some diseases reaching levels not seen for nearly 20 years, and others reaching legitimate all-time highs. HIV and STDs are still best prevented through consistent and correct condom use, reduction of the number of sex partners or monogamy and knowing the testing status of sex partners and choosing safer sex practices based on the partner's status.
