At least 125 people in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have tested positive for HIV,
syphilis or both in one of the largest sexually transmitted infection
'clusters' ever reported in the US.
The number of cases is expected to grow as more people come forward and
clinicians identify more potential cases through asking those infected for
their sexual history.
Among the cluster are as many as a dozen high school students, according
to Milwaukee's Journal Sentinel.
Officials have said this is an ongoing, city-wide health issue especially
among people between the ages of 15 and 24 that will have serious
consequences if it doesn't get under control soon.
Three babies were born with syphilis in 2017 and health officials became
increasingly concerned with the growing prevalence of STIs in mid-December
after several people reported having HIV or syphilis symptoms.
On Wednesday it was reported that 125 people, the majority of whom are
men, have tested positive for one or both of the diseases, with 45 percent
testing positive for HIV.
Officials say the actual number of people in the cluster is likely higher
than the 125 reported because many people don't come forward out of fear
of being stigmatized.
The group has been identified as a 'cluster' because they could all be
connected and were in contact with each other during a 12-month period,
local public health consultant Melissa Ugland told the Journal Sentinel.
Fewer than 10 percent, or about 12 people, are Milwaukee Public School
'We are working with the health department to provide preventative
information to our students as they fall within this age group and we have
the unique ability to literally reach hundreds of students at one time
with information that can protect their health,' MPS spokeswoman Denise
Callaway told Daily Mail Online.
After news of the cluster broke on Wednesday, the city's health department
tweeted: 'Troubling #publichealth news, there has been an increase in new
cases of HIV/Syphilis. Sadly this included infants in 2017.
'On March 1st, MHD launched a commuter ad campaign with MCTS to raise

After a person tests positive for an infection, they are referred for care
and interviewed about their sexual history.
Officials then reach out to others who may have been infected so they can
be tested and treated.
Reports say that while some people in the cluster have been cooperative,
others have been hesitant to reveal names of previous sexual partners.
Syphilis is transmitted from person to person via direct contact with a
round, painless sore called a chancre, and symptoms typically appear three
weeks after contact.
The disease is usually diagnosed with a blood test and can be treated with
If caught in its early stages, there are no lasting effects, but if left
untreated, it can ultimately lead to damage in the brain, nerves, heart,
bones and joints.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were
more than 80,000 reported diagnoses of syphilis in 2016.
The disease is most prevalent in men who have sex with men, but the number
of cases affecting heterosexual men and women has increased in recent
In 2015 there were an estimated 39,513 new diagnoses of HIV in the US, a
10-percent decline from 2010.
HIV is spread through bodily fluids such as blood and semen.
Most HIV infections can be detected four weeks after contact and are
diagnosed using a blood test.
HIV rates vary from state to state, and 45 percent people with HIV are
living in the South.
Georgia has the highest rate with 31.8 people per 100,000 living with HIV.
By comparison, Wisconsin has a rate of 4.6 per 100,000 people.
