What are the STI test options in Corpus Christi,TX?
Nueces County reports rising numbers, similar to statewide and nationwide trends. Syphilis rates in 2009 totaled only 30 cases across the county; however, by 2018 that number had increased to a total of 146 cases reported in Nueces County.
Also worth noting that now antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea cases are on the rise.
Health officials believe the popularity of dating apps has contributed. In response, some apps – like Grindr – now include such features as HIV testing reminders.
