A warning has been issued by health officials about the recent increase in cases with sexually transmitted infections which means that people are still engaging in unsafe sex and putting themselves at risk.

According to figures released by Public Health England there were 448,422 diagnoses with an increase of five percent from 2011.

Nearly 50% of all infections were Chlamydia, new gonorrhea diagnoses increased by 21 percent. Antibiotic resistance is another major worry and health chiefs must get their act together to create awareness of STIs especially among the young and vulnerable lot.
