Syphilis cases have soared by 70 per cent in Europe since 2010, data shows.
A report reveals the sexually transmitted infection (STI) reached an all-time high in 2017, with 33,189 confirmed cases in 28 countries across the continent.
The article goes on to state the following:
This is an increase of more than 13,000 from the 19,797 reported incidences in 2007.
Although an issue throughout Europe, cases of the STI more than doubled between 2010 and 2017 in five countries, including Britain.
Once considered a ‘Victorian disease’, some countries even saw more new cases of syphilis than HIV, the report found.
Researchers from Sweden blame unprotected sex, ‘riskier behaviours among gay men’ and a ‘reduced fear of HIV’ for the surge in syphilis, which can be deadly if untreated.
