The CDC recently released the names of the top 15 cities across the United States that have the highest herpes rate. The center said that the top 5 cities from the list had 40% infection rate which was the result of sexually active young people in those cities.
Here’s a list of all 15 cities with highest herpes rate that was released by the Center for Disease Control:
- Washington, D.C.
- St. Louis
- New Orleans
- Oklahoma City
The dangerous part of herpes is that it is easily transferable from person to person. Some people have it for years but after an outbreak they think that someone close to them was the reason for transferring it into them. Additional report says that wearing condoms during intercourse doesn’t make you safe from getting herpes. It can transfer just by rubbing against skin. They said, hooking up with different people increases the chance of getting herpes significantly.
Are you amazed to see that Atlanta has made it on top of the list?
