Did you know that you might also be able to add a higher rate of STDs to the list of reasons why Covid-19 continues to be absolutely the worst thing of the last three years? Dating during Covid-19 was challenging enough, but did it also seem like people were going from stranger to cohabitating and pregnant at an alarming rate?

Why are STDs so high right now?

Besides the information in the video above, another potential reason cited by the CDC for an increase in STDs during the past three months is that the rate of sexual contact did not go down even as people were told to shelter in place.
