High rate of chlamydia in teens

first_imgStuff co.nz 26 June 2014“Staggeringly high” rates of chlamydia have been reported among New Zealand teenage girls.A report by Environmental Science and Research (ESR) was the first time data was collated from every laboratory in the country on people tested, as well as the number of new sexually transmitted infection (STI) cases found.It found 5064 cases of chlamydia per 100,000 population in teenage girls aged 15 and over.This was a “staggeringly high” rate, the report authors said.Because only six per cent of teenage boys were tested for STIs, compared to 35 per cent of teenage girls, the real number of men with chlamydia was likely higher.Sexually transmitted infections other than HIV/AIDS are not legally required to be reported to government authorities. Reports like ESR’s rely on voluntarily contributed data.http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/10202541/High-rate-of-chlamydia-in-teenslast_img read more

Brathwaithe blames Williams for Windies loss

first_img(CMC) – LITTLE mention was made of West Indies’ fragile batting as the Caribbean side sought reasons to explain their 47-run defeat to New Zealand in Friday’s opening Twenty20 International.Instead, the spotlight fell on the final over of the Black Caps innings when seamer, Kesrick Williams, conceded 25 runs, allowing the hosts to rattle up 187 for seven off their allotted 20 overs, after they were sent in at Saxton Oval.“For the first 19 overs we bowled as good as we did. But it happens, Kesrick Williams has been the best bowler in the world this calendar year and he just went awry,” captain Carlos Brathwaite said afterwards.“It wasn’t even a bad day, just one bad over and that gave them some momentum going into our innings, and we never really got that big over.”Glenn Phillips top-scored with 55 and Colin Munro got 53, but the Windies snatched five wickets for 40 runs in 31 balls during the middle overs, to leave the hosts on 162 for seven at the end of the 19th.But Mitchell Santner, who finished on 23 not out from 11 balls, then tore into Williams, to propel New Zealand to a competitive total.Still, West Indies batted poorly from the outset, losing wickets steadily, and only Andre Fletcher with 27, Brathwaite who scored 21 and tail-ender Ashley Nurse, 21 not out, showed any real enterprise.They were already beaten at 103 for eight in the 16th over before Nurse saved some face with lusty hitting.“Credit to them (New Zealand). Sometimes you have to give credit to the opposition,” Brathwaite said of the Black Caps bowling effort.“They bowled with discipline and they fielded really well.”New Zealand captain Tim Southee praised his side’s all-round effort.“We struggled early on with the bat, but the guys hung in there and were able to finish really strongly and then the way we fielded and bowled was exceptional,” he said.West Indies face New Zealand in the second T20 at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on New Year’s Day.last_img read more
