Baby born with syphilis every hour in China


www.usatoday.com

Every hour a baby is born in China with syphilis, as the world's fastest-growing epidemic of the disease is fueled by men with new money from the nation's booming economy, researchers say.

The easy-to-cure bacterial infection, which was nearly wiped out in China five decades ago, is now the most commonly reported sexually transmitted disease in its largest city, Shanghai.

Prostitutes along with gay and bisexual men, many of whom are married with families, are driving the epidemic, according to a commentary published Thursday in the New England Journal of Medicine.

I doubt they do wide testing like they do here is the states as most Chinese are rather poor. I know when I first found out I was pregnat they took 7 vials of blood from me and I thought i was gonna pass out.


It's a damn shame, at least it's treatable though.

It such a shame yes, I do know that people are poor but surely the chinese government would want to screen people and cost the system a lot less in treatment though, silly life is just backwards sometimes.

I dunno, considering this is the country with forced labor camps and mobile death vans...I don't think they really care all that much if they live or die. It is of course a serious health issue as Syphilis generally spreads like wildfire and actually causes brain damage when left untreated. Government and pro-activity don't normally go together though.

As for my ordeal, I go to a military hospital. Ibuprofen is the miracle drug for everything and you need to man up! Or so it seems around here though, I don't complain though. I'd rather have my kid here than the hospital off post.
