Hookup apps blamed for STD spike

A few days ago the CDC issued an alarming new bulletin revealing that STD rates are skyrocketing across the United States. Cases of gonorrhea and syphilis have reached levels not seen for decades, and chlamydia is currently at an all-time high. It’s bad news, and it’s understandable that health officials want to get to the bottom of these alarming numbers as soon as possible.

So, what could possibly be leading to many new STD cases? Each state is doing its best to tackle the startling rise in STDs, but Hawaii’s Department of Health is one of the first to come out and say what everyone is already thinking: hookup apps are to blame.
