Bronx and Manhattan – “Claiming the Most STD New Cases By Boroughs”

Sexually transmitted diseases are up across all of New York City in 2015, but they’re the highest in those two boroughs, according to the newest data released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on Oct. 19.

In New York state, those numbers are all up as well. New York saw a rise of 4.9 percent in chlamydia cases, 9.3 percent in syphilis cases and 23.9 percent in gonorrhea cases. New York state is ranked 12th-worst in the country in chlamydia, 16th-worst in gonorrhea and 7th-worst in syphilis. All three are worse than the national average.

The CDC also breaks numbers down by county each year, meaning it’s possible to count the total cases by borough. The boroughs are only ranked through the top 70, however, and Staten Island doesn’t appear on any of the lists.

For those who are wondering, if you’re in Brooklyn: Bedford-Stuyvesant and Crown Heights lead the city in new HIV infections
