U.S. infections from three sexually transmitted diseases have risen for your fifth consecutive year.
A little more than 1.7 million cases of chlamydia (kluh-MID’-ee-uh) were reported a year ago. The infection rate rose 3% from 2017. It’s the foremost ever reported each year, although the trend is basically by associated increased testing. About 580,000 gonorrhea (gah-nuh-REE’-uh) cases were reported. That’s the highest number since 1991. The pace rose 5%. Scientists worry antibiotic resistance could be considered a factor. And of course, the syphilis rate rose 15%. About 35,000 cases of by far the most contagious forms of the condition were reported — also one of the most since 1991. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the numbers on Tuesday. The increases coincided with health care funding cuts and clinic closures.
House investigators issued subpoenas Thursday up to 2 associates of President Trump’s lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani following their arrest on campaign finance charges, seeking “key documents” which have not been produced along with impeachment inquiry.
The 2 guys are supposed to charge with scheming to funnel foreign money to U.S. politicians within a bid to affect U.S.-Ukraine relations. Both types have helped Giuliani investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his awesome son, although the indictment does not mention Giuliani or suggest that he cannot be charged with illegal trespass portion of alleged crimes. The developments played out as Trump ready to move to Minneapolis as a result of his first campaign rally since House Democrats launched the impeachment inquiry. Ahead of the trip, Trump lashed out at Fox News following its release of a new poll showing 51 percent of voters want to see him impeached and taken out of office. That is an uptick considering that the House launched an inquiry focused on Trump’s call wherein he pressed the president of Ukraine to look into the Bidens at a time when U.S. military aid to Ukraine was withheld.
