The CDC just gave New Mexico this unfortunate ranking

Recently released data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has placed New Mexico at the forefront of a concerning trend: the state is experiencing higher rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) compared to the majority of the United States. This information sheds light on the public health challenges New Mexico faces, particularly in managing infections such as congenital syphilis, syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea.

The CDC’s findings from 2022 highlight the significant prevalence of these infections within the state. New Mexico, in particular, has seen alarming rates of syphilis. The data reveals that the state leads the nation with a rate of 355.3 cases of congenital syphilis per 100,000 live births. This figure is notably high and places New Mexico at the top of the list for this specific infection. Furthermore, when it comes to primary and secondary syphilis, New Mexico is second only to one, with an incidence rate of 36 cases per 100,000 individuals.

Chlamydia is another STI where New Mexico’s numbers are notably higher than the national average. The state reported 528.6 cases per 100,000 people, positioning it 13th among the 50 states. This is a clear indication that chlamydia is a significant health concern that needs to be addressed within the community.

Gonorrhea rates in New Mexico also exceed those in many other states. With 196.7 reported cases per 100,000 residents, New Mexico ranks 20th in the country for this infection. This statistic means that New Mexico surpasses 30 other states in terms of gonorrhea prevalence.

The CDC’s report emphasizes the urgency of addressing this issue, especially in the wake of public health challenges such as the monkeypox outbreak. The report states, “As STI services and related resources continue to rebound from the U.S. COVID-19 pandemic and monkeypox outbreak, we must act now to mobilize and execute a whole-of-nation approach if we hope to turn the tide.” This clarion call highlights the need for a unified and comprehensive strategy to combat the rising tide of STIs in New Mexico and beyond.

The data presented by the CDC serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing battle against STIs in the United States, with New Mexico at the epicenter of this public health crisis. The state’s disproportionately high rates of syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea underscore the necessity for enhanced public health initiatives, increased access to STI testing and treatment, and broader educational efforts to mitigate the spread of these infections.

  1. Yet another symptom from lack of knowledge and obedience of the Bible. Our creator knew we would need help and gave us the word to guide us through life which is full of sin and distruction. It up to us to put it back into our lives.


    2. And in a state where abortion is used as birth control this isn’t surprising. And our very large number of one parent homes and homes where moms have multiple partners this is to be expected. When it was decided that God wasn’t to be allowed in public life and the pro life stance is vilified we are left without morals.

  2. Why does this not surprise me. In Torc of you are anti pedophilla your targeted as anti gay. So many people only focus what’s between their legs

  3. Gonorrhea in New Mexico ranks only 20th in the country I would say this is great, usually NM is in the 49-50 in the nation. I would take it as a good sign. Maybe if NM quit throwing money at our schools that push the woke agenda of the marxists from DC we would improve. But that is not likely to happen. Here is the deal, if you vote democrat, you are either a Marxist or you are misinformed. My true belief is you are a marxist or an idiot, but I know many NMs work hard and do not pay attention to the news but it is time we do as we are destroying our families and our state.

  4. I WONDER if this might be from all the illegal aliens invading our borders. It’s pretty well known that the cartel gangsters rape many of the women that come across. If those women or (hopefully not) children are forced into the sex trade, then they’re going to spread disease……
    Along with all the other diseases the these illegals bring in, the STDs are just another symptom of the whole border crisis that NM is experiencing and that our illustrious governor and POS POTUS are inflicting on us.
