New York: STD Chlamydia a Concern in Onodaga County

November 29, 2005

The incidence of chlamydia rose 60 percent between 2002 and 2004 in Onondaga County, according to a report in the Post-Standard of Syracuse. In response to the increase, the state has set up sentinel sites in Onondaga, Monroe, Westchester, Erie and Dutchess counties, which are now testing every STD clinic patient for the infection. New infections appear to be down 12 percent this year, and the credit for this goes to efforts to increase screening and educate patients as well as doctors, said Diane Rothermel, director of the Onodaga County Bureau of Disease Control.
