(St. Paul, MN) -- Health officials say syphilis cases are rising in Minnesota.
Cases went up 33-percent in the state last year, expanding to include more women and infants exposed prenatally. There was an eight-percent rise in HIV cases, and a one-percent increase in sexually transmitted diseases combined last year.
The jump is happening despite the impact of the pandemic on social distancing.
