The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday that Kansas reported 152 cases of primary and secondary stage syphilis in 2018, compared with 60 in 2013. Finally, cases of gonorrhea reached over 583,000, up 63% since 2014 and the most reported in 28 years.

The data includes almost 2.5 million cases combined of chlamydia, a disease which, when undiagnosed, threatens fertility, gonorrhea, a disease growing resistant to existing treatments, syphilis, a disease that had been in decline, and a 40% increase in congenital syphilis, the transmission of the infection from mother to child, carrying risks of miscarriage, death of newborn infants, and lifelong health ramifications.

We finally broke out of the top 5 in cases of Primary Secondary Syphilis.

A rise in the prevalence and incidence of STDs can come with serious public health consequences and concerns, including infertility, drug-resistant gonorrhea and congenital syphilis, which can cause infant death.

Among these, chlamydia is the most commonly reported; with rates being highest in 20 to 24-year-old women.

The CDC's numbers include a break down of each state, including Nevada. University Health Services spokesperson Tami Cate said the Tang Center has seen an uptick in the number of STD cases consistent with national trends. The CDC cautioned that many cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis "continue to go undiagnosed and unreported", which means the data recorded only highlights "a fraction of America's STD epidemic". "Most people infected with an STD do not know it".

The increases coincided with public health funding cuts and clinic closures.

"It's very concerning", said John Swartzberg, clinical professor emeritus at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health.

San Joaquin County health officials replanted the department and appealed for grants to increase the number of investigators available as congenital syphilis spiked, said Hemal Parikh, county coordinator for STD control.

According to Hertin, increasing access to testing remains is a priority. The spike in cases is attributed to less use of protection during sexual activity.
