Three STDs hit new highs again in U.S.

New CDC data show that infections from chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis have risen in the United States for fifth year in a row. According to the data, more than 1.7 million cases of chlamydia were reported in 2018. The infection rate increased 3% from the previous year. The trend has been largely attributed to increased testing for the disease.

According to the data, more than 1.7 million cases of chlamydia were reported in 2018. The infection rate increased 3% from the previous year. The trend has been largely attributed to increased testing for the disease. In addition, about 580,000 cases of gonorrhea were reported, a 5% increase and the highest number since 1991. Researchers are concerned that antibiotic resistance could be a factor. Meanwhile, the CDC report also saw a 15% increase in syphilis cases, with about 35,000 cases of the most contagious forms of the disease reported. The higher numbers of cases coincided with the closure of clinics and cuts to public health funding.
