According to the report of the European Center for Prevention and Control of Diseases (ECDC), cases of sexually transmitted diseases increased by 70 per cent, since 2010.

The report said the increase was due to more unprotected sexual activity and sexual behavior among homosexual men.

“The increase in syphilis infection across Europe is a result of unprotected sex and sex couples as well as the growing fear of getting infected with HIV,” ECDC expert Andrew Amato-Gauci said.

The report, published after the World Health Organization (WHO), last month, informed about one million individuals worldwide infected with sexually transmitted diseases every day.

If untreated, syphilis causes severe effects on men and women including infant mortality and increased risk of HIV.
