Reported Sexually Transmitted Diseases Increase in Calaveras County

San Andreas, CA...A significant increase in Calaveras County residents diagnosed with a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) in 2017 was reported by the Calaveras County Public Health Division (CCPHD). According to local health authorities, cases of gonorrhea increased from 12 cases in 2016 to 21 cases in 2017, while cases of syphilis increased from 6 to 10 during the same time period. Similar increases in STD rates were seen statewide as well. According to a report released by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), more than 300,000 cases of Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and early Syphilis were reported in 2017: a 45 percent increase compared to 5 years ago.




Particularly concerning, in 2017, there were 30 stillbirths due to congenital syphilis in California. This is the highest number reported since 1995.

STDs can cause a number of serious health problems if left untreated. Chlamydia and gonorrhea can cause pelvic inflammatory disease and lead to infertility, ectopic pregnancy and chronic pelvic pain. Syphilis can cause permanent vision loss, hearing and other neurologic problems.

Chlamydia and gonorrhea rates are highest among people under 30 and women. Men may have equal rates of infection but are less likely to be diagnosed and treated by a health care provider.

“STDs are preventable by consistently using condoms, and many STDs can be cured with antibiotics,” said Calaveras County Public Health Officer Dr. Dean Kelaita.

“Regular testing and treatment are very important for people who are sexually active, even for those who have no symptoms. Most people infected with an STD do not know it.” Calaveras County Public Health is working with the medical community to better diagnose and treat those at risk for STDs. People living in Calaveras County can get condoms at no cost by visiting the Public Health Office or by ordering them online at https://publichealth.calaverasgov.us/Community-Health-News.

For more information on STDs, please contact the Calaveras County Public Health Division at 209-754-6460.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Democrats blaming the President.
    Yet who's more corrupt? THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY....FACT
    "Democrat corruption beats GOP by a margin of 2:1

    The 21st Century may be the century of graft and corruption for the Republican Party, but it has a long way to go to catch up with the Democratic BadBoys from the 20th and 19th Centuries.

    Who's ahead - Democrats or Republicans?

    The usual caricature is that Republicans are only interested in stealing money and Democrats are content with sex. Well, let's see. Here's the score card for Congressional Bad Boys. This represents the BadBoys since 1975:

    Looking at the House Ethics Committee historical list, you'll find that there were 68 Democrats and 34 Republicans, from 1856 through 2004 who were caught up in questionable activity. (Note, the list starts keeping tabs of Democrats versus Republicans in the mid 1850s, once the Republican party was formed. Click here to see beginning of the tally). So, from the House Ethics Committee historical list, the Democrats maintained a healthy two-to-one lead."
    When it comes to felonies 73% of convicted felons are.....drum roll please....DEMOCRATS...FACT

      Trump people have only Obama or Hillary to attack when any given subject comes up for which Trump cannot be defended. As in this case, Trump has become the leader we can point to as the poster child for sexual promiscuity and adultery. Both of those behavior patterns lead to increases in STDS. So in this case, it's not a far stretch to credit him for increases throughout our country in cases of STDS. Probably not what he and his supporters would like, but certainly deserved. Making STDS Great Again. Yeah!!!!! TRUMP!!!

Trump is a sexually transmitted disease that is being spread from his mouth to his anus to his supporters tongues and then back two trumps dick. Then Trump supporters pass it around to each other as they tell themselves how great they are, just like Trump does. Trump and his supporters have STDs and they got it from each other.

Say what you want. Your are all rude. But, people better be paying attention. We tell our youth don't be lazy and get a job.
Nobody anticipates it comes with STD.
Public health should set up shop and pass out condoms in Murphys.

Did your little 🚀 scientist fall asleep while in class? Did you not sit him down and tell him don't let Jethro bang him in his rear without using protection?
