What are the STI test options in Redondo Beach,CA?
Redondo Beach of Southern California, belongs to the greater Los Angeles area. Which is of course the second largest—and densely—populated area in the United States. Most concerning is the rate of syphilis, which had almost been wiped out in the area and is now on the rise.
For 2015, Los Angeles Metro, including the Redondo Beach area, showed a rate of 171 per 100,000 people infected by gonorrhea. The same year, chlamydia rates were at 555 for every 100,000 people. For primary and secondary syphilis, the rate has climbed to 15 per 100,000. This may not sound like much, but it is a 30 percent increase from numbers reported in 2014.
With more than 10 million people in Greater Los Angeles, that makes for more than 1,500 new cases of syphilis per year.
The reported cases for new diagnosis of people living with HIV in LA County are continuing to show a steady decrease. Medical professionals in the Newport Beach area believe this is thanks to regular health screenings, prevention education, and treatment. They hope the trend of getting tested regularly keeps up.
