Utah: Rate of Syphilis Cases on the Rise
July 13, 2010
Barely halfway through 2010, the 40 syphilis cases logged by Salt Lake County health officials have topped the 2009 total of 37, putting the county on track to double its caseload of the STD by year's end.
To address the increase, the Salt Lake Valley Health Department is reaching out to men who have sex with men with a recommendation for twice-yearly syphilis testing.
