The city of Broken Arrow touches two separate counties in Oklahoma—Tulsa and Wagoner County. Between 2014 and 2015, the rate of chlamydia cases in Tulsa County jumped by 4.3%. Putting the rate of occurrence at 674.2 per every 100,000 people tested.
The Broken Arrow area is the fourth largest city in the state of Oklahoma, so it makes sense that their chlamydia diagnoses would rank them 2nd highest of all counties.
In other news, the rate of gonorrhea outbreaks between 2014 and 2015 dropped in Tulsa County. By 5.6% to be precise—nothing to sneeze at. That puts their rate of gonorrhea cases at 249.5 out of every 100,000 people. For 2016, Tulsa County accounted for 26.1% of all new HIV cases in Oklahoma with a rate of 77 per 100,000. Tulsa also took 2nd highest out of 10 for primary and syphilis cases in 2015. With only 38 cases that year, giving them a rate of 5.9 per 100,000. About half the rate of Oklahoma County.
