The Centers for Disease Control just released their latest study on sexually transmitted diseases and provided yet another reason why Congress has a lower approval rating than that last paper cut you got that you could have sworn nearly sliced your finger completely off.
As the charts below illustrate, the miscreants who run our federal government, in between their extramarital affairs of course, apparently helped Washington D.C. to "dominate" the CDC's state-by-state rankings for STDs in 2016. With respect to Chlamydia outbreaks, for example, Washington D.C.'s reported cases exceeded the national average by 118% and the next closest state of Alaska by 40%.
In 2016, a total of 1,598,354 cases of Chlamydia trachomatis infection were reported to the CDC, making it the most common notifiable condition in the United States. This case count corresponds to a rate of 497.3 cases per 100,000 population, an increase of 4.7% compared with the rate in 2015. During 2015–2016, rates of reported chlamydia increased in all regions of the United States.
Winning...But it's not just Chlamydia, our political elites "dominated" across the board in 2016 when it came to reported cases of STDs with theoutbreak of Gonorrhea in our nation's capital reaching a staggering 230% above the national average.
In 2009, the national rate of reported gonorrhea cases reached an historic low of 98.1 cases per 100,000 population. During 2009–2012, the rate increased slightly each year to 106.7 cases per 100,000 population in 2012 and has increased steadily during 2014–2016. In 2016, 468,514 gonorrhea cases were reported for a rate of 145.8 cases per 100,000 population, an increase of 18.5% from 2015.
