'Wake up call': 1M new STD infections daily

Friday, June 7, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , ,

(Worthy News) - More than 1 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases pop up across the world every day, a figure that shows health officials have made little progress in curbing infections over the course of about five years.

“We’re seeing a concerning lack of progress in stopping the spread of sexually transmitted infections worldwide,” Dr. Peter Salama, the World Health Organization executive director for universal health coverage and life course, said in a statement. “This is a wake-up call for a concerted effort to ensure everyone, everywhere can access the services they need to prevent and treat these debilitating diseases.”

A study published online Thursday by the Bulletin of the World Health Organization found that 376 million new cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, and syphilis developed among people between the ages of 15-49 in 2016. Some of the cases may be multiple infections at the same time or re-infections among the same people. The infections are curable with medicines, but people don't become immune after being treated.

  1. God will protect His own for He has promise ''there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling''

  2. Only those raped, it would seem, have an excuse for getting on. Except for the rarest of cases where it really can be (like) gotten from a toilet seat.

    Sexual sins are one of the few rules which the original apostles, elders, and disciples, set out for the new ones come to Jesus, the Messiah.

    See Acts 15. Esp Acts 15:19-29. After placing our trust in Y'shua (Jesus), that's the second line of our Christian brethren's Creed. Except that it's not. The vast majority of Christians are not taught that in the beginning of their walk with Messiah, at all.

  3. One of the main reasons they can not control it, and so it spreads quickly, is because of the weird privacy laws we have now.

    Originally, when someone got an STD, or Tuberulosis or Typhoid, diseases that threaten the rest of humanity around them, when the patient with the disease went for treatment or to be evaluated, they had to tell the names of the people to whom they might have passed it onto. So for the fornicator, they had to name names. The same with Tuberulosis, a persons family might be quarentined. They still do that with the new Resistant TB. Not so with STD's.

    It came about as a result of the AIDS epidemic. The privacy of the patient, who often was a gay male, in the beginning (or sadly blood transfusion recipients) became a nightmare when they had to disclose the names of all they'd had gay sex with. Because (rightly) the Public Health Depts would then contact said "partner" whether it had been a one night stand (or many in that one night stand) and jobs were lost because of the extreme prejudices people still had about homosexuals back then. And that was on top of the prejudices people had to those with HIV and/or AIDS.

    So, the practice of notifying suspected passing on of STD's stopped, at least in the USA. So, now, everyone can keep their own personal STD's a secret and still go out and pass them on to whomever they feel like hurting. Makes one night romps turn into something with malice aforethought. It can turn the memory of great one night stands into "what did he mean by doing that to me"?

    This is the problem with Democracy gone wild. Majority rule sounds great, until you get HIV or herpes yourself.
