The Center for disease Control just came out with it’s STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) Report for 2016 and the FACTS don’t lie.
Here are some quotes from the report:
“Overall, the rate of reported cases of chlamydia among Blacks was 5.6 times the rate among Whites (1,125.9 and 199.8 cases per 100,000 population, respectively).”
“the rate of reported gonorrhea cases remained highest among Blacks (481.2 cases per 100,000 population) (Table 22B). The rate among Blacks was 8.6 times the rate among Whites (55.7 cases per 100,000 population).”
“Among these, the rate of reported P&S syphilis cases was highest among Blacks (23.1 cases per 100,000 population) (Table 35B). The P&S syphilis rate among Blacks was 4.7 times the rate among Whites (4.9 cases per 100,000 population)”
“MSM [Men who have sex with men] continued to account for the majority of P&S syphilis cases in 2016 (Figures 35 and 36). Of 27,814 reported P&S syphilis cases in 2016, 16,155 (58.1%) were among MSM, including 14,553 (52.3%) cases among men who had sex with men only and 1,602 (5.8%) cases among men who had sex with both men and women (Figure 36). Overall, 3,880 (13.9%) cases were among men who had sex with women only (MSW), 3,049 (11.0%) were among women, 4,689 (16.9%) were among men without information about sex of sex partner, and 41 (0.1%) were cases reported with unknown sex. Among the 20,035 male cases with information on sex of sex partner, 80.6% occurred among MSM [Men who have sex with men].”
“In 2016, 1,072,719 cases of chlamydia were reported among females for a rate of 657.3 cases per 100,000 females (Table 4). After increasing each year during 2000–2011, the rate of reported chlamydia cases among females decreased during 2011–2013, followed by an increase in the rate of reported cases over each of the next three years..”
“the rate of reported chlamydia cases among females was still about two times the rate among males in 2016”
