More Than 3,700 Babies Were Born With Congenital Syphilis in 2022 — 10 Times More Than a Decade Ago and a 32% Increase From 2021

More than 3,700 babies were born with congenital syphilis in 2022 — 10 times more than a decade ago and a 32% increase from 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday. Syphilis caused 282 stillbirth and infant deaths, nearly 16 times more than the 2012 deaths.
I wonder if their is a connection to the sex trafficking and amount of prostitution from the influx of prostitutes from 3rd world countries.
