While the number of syphilis patients in Japan is rapidly increasing, the number of patients diagnosed with syphilis infection in Japan has already exceeded 10,000 this year. It is spreading faster than last year, which recorded the highest number ever먹튀검증.
On the 13th, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported that the number of syphilis patients is increasing faster this year than last year, citing Japan’s National Institute of Infectious Diseases’ infectious disease outbreak trend survey (preliminary report).
The number of syphilis patients reported this year as of the 3rd was 10,110, which is about 2,000 more than the same period last year.
By region, Tokyo had the largest number with 2,490. This was followed by Osaka with 1,365 people, Aichi Prefecture with 590 people, and Fukuoka Prefecture with 588 people. Among men, syphilis spread mainly among people in their 20s to 50s, while among women, it was reported that most cases occurred in those in their early 20s.
In Japan, the number of syphilis patients has been increasing rapidly since it exceeded 1,000 in 2013. In 2021, there were 7,978 people, and last year, there were 13,228 people (preliminary information).
In response to this, the Yomiuri Shimbun said, “Experts urged caution, citing prostitution establishments with insufficient sexually transmitted disease testing systems or having one-night sex with someone you met through social networking services ( SNS ) as factors.”
Syphilis, which is mostly spread through sexual intercourse, causes a rash at the infected area about a month after infection. When syphilis spreads throughout the body, a rash appears on the palms and soles of the feet.
In the past, it was considered a disease that was difficult to cure, but in modern times, it can be easily treated with medication. However, if the rash disappears and the patient is not treated properly, the syphilis bacteria can remain dormant in the body and affect various organs of the body, including the heart and nerves, several years later, leading to death.
