Useless “news” about Herpes Infection

This article does not clearly delineate the virus and method of testing done to determine the supposed “results”.

U.S. herpes rates remain high – CDC | Reuters.

Since Herpes simplex I and  HSV II  can each be transmitted by genital and oral contact, ( with this situation mainly a result of  widespread  oral-genital contact),  headlining  statistics about only one type of virus is rather useless.

The one in six statistic addresses only HSV II infection, and not the very common HSV I infection.
