More than 7,000 cases of syphilis and almost 46,000 cases of gonorrhoea were reported to Public Health England in 2017.
A total of 7,137 new diagnoses of syphilis were made in 2017, a jump of 20 percent on the previous year, and more than double the number recorded in 2012. The next highest incidence was seen among those aged between 35 and 44 years. This is mainly because gonorrhoea strains that are affecting people are becoming increasingly resistant to the antibiotics that are at hand.
Sexually transmitted infections or STI cases are continuing to be a big problem, especially in England where a number of officials are saying the issue is growing due to budget cuts.
In total, clinics treated 422,147 STIs infections in 2017, down 0.3 per cent on 2016. Councillor Izzi Seccombe, chairwoman of the Local Government Association's Community Wellbeing Board said in a statement that this major rise in attendances to the SHS has put a strain on the resources. Health inequalities will remain and councils may be unable to respond effectively to unforeseen outbreaks'. However, the decline may also reflect a rise in the use of home testing kits - and the availability of testing in other settings, it says.
"A reduced ability to identify, test and treat exposed people means they may be unaware of their infection and could be spreading it to others", Landers said.
"Consistent and correct condom use with new and casual partners is the best defense against STIs, and if you are at risk, regular check-ups are essential to enable early diagnosis and treatment", Dr. Gwenda Hughes from PHE stated.
