“MK” finds out the reasons for the outbreak of venereal diseases in the Saratov region and other Russian regions
The Saratov region found itself in the center of a “venereal scandal” when on October 21, at a meeting of the local city council committee, deputy Alexander Vantsov announced shocking statistics: the number of syphilis sufferers in the region increased by 24%. “The people are rotting!” – simply and clearly summed up the deputy. Where do the doctors look? Could it be that medical unscrupulousness is to blame for this surge?
In January-June 2014, the incidence of syphilis in the Saratov region increased by 24% compared to the same period last year – 488 cases against 394.
