Three sexually transmitted diseases hit new highs again in US

  • CDC researchers say the 2.5 million cases of syphilis gonorrhea and chlamydia reported in 2018 are an all-time high

It's the most ever reported in a year, though the trend is mainly attributed to increased testing.

The CDC writes that "urgent action from all types of stakeholders is needed to help control the increases in STDs", and says that it is working to develop a federal action plan to stop the rise in rates.

And, noted the CDC, they are seeing an alarming rise in newborn deaths from congenital syphilis, with almost 100 infants dying of the disease in 2018.

About 580,000 gonorrhea cases were reported. But there are some disparities, with the highest number of cases reported among people between the ages of 15-24, African-Americans, and those who are gay, bisexual, or men who have sex with other men, according to the department.

In 2018, there were an astounding 35,000 confirmed cases of the disease.

Kansas has seen a big jump in syphilis cases over the past five years and a spike in the number of infants born with the sexually transmitted disease. Add to that recent cuts to state and local STD programs, resulting in clinic closures and less screening and patient follow-up.

There were 19 stillbirths or 3 neonatal deaths associated with congenital syphilis past year, according to the report. Of those infants, 94 died - up from 77 deaths in 2017.

And it can have devastating effects on developing babies.

Babies with congenital syphilis are at risk of premature birth and low birth weights.

But what was particularly concerning for health officials was the number of congenital syphilis diagnoses which rose 14% from the previous year and increased for a sixth consecutive year.

Although 41 U.S. states reported cases, 70 of them occurred in five states: Texas, California Arizona and Louisiana.
