More Military Personnel Had Chlamydia Than H1N1 or Novel Flu

Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are sexually transmitted diseases and curable with antibiotics use. 

As opposed to CDC and government statistics sounding alarm bells at the increased number of H1N1 Swine Flu nationwide, our military is seeing no such numbers U.S. troops are combat ready, just having a lot of unprotected sex.   At the time of this report no one had apparently began receiving the H1N1 Flu shot.

There was some concern when The Boxer and the Boxer Amphibious Ready Group and the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (13th MEU) reported that a large amount of crew members had either the Swine or Seasonal Flu. see- https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/27/h1n1-swine-quarantine-navy-ship-crew/#comment-2784 

In recent weeks a small number of ARG Sailors and 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) Marines aboard USS Boxer (LHD 4), USS Lake Champlain (CG 57), USS Comstock (LSD 45) and USS New Orleans (LPD 18) had symptoms of an influenza-like illness (ILI). Sixty-nine crew members were officially confirmed to have had strain H1N1 virus, while many others were confirmed to have a typical seasonal flu strain.

“Units now have the ability to provide enhanced medical intervention in shipboard infection control, decontamination-disinfection, patient isolation, sampling and initiation of treatment,” Baxter said.  http://www.navynews.com/local_news_04.htm

Whether or not patient isolation can be defined as a quarantine is up for debate. 

From The Chief, Bureau of  Medicine and Surgery, A.M. Robinson, Jr in a May 2009 report regarding Interim Guidance  for H1N1 Influenza Virus Infection- http://www-nmcphc.med.navy.mil/downloads/diseases_conditions/SwineFlu/BUMEDNOTE%206220%20(6%20May%202009).pdf 

d. Planning Measures

(1) Movement restriction (to include isolation, quarantine, and sequestration of units) is a viable means by which to decrease spread of infection.

U.S. Northern Commander, Air Force General Gene Renuart said that between 15 and 20 troops have been dispatched to each of the five regional headquarters, to work with officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and state leaders.  But the military presence could rise to 80 in each regional office if needed, he said.”http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5g928uDiWtcnBFT28j5UfIeUXXuMQD9B1838G2 

The move to have active duty troops on U.S. soil throws Posse Comitatus out the door.  Will the same planning measures of isolation, quarantine, and sequestration that applies to military personnel also apply to civilians?

The fact remains that “All military personnel will be vaccinated against the H1N1 flu virus, and the vaccine will be available to all military family members who want it.”  http://www.vancouverite.com/2009/09/02/mandatory-swine-fluvaccination-for-u-s-military 

condom red

Both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are preventable with the use of condoms.  Perhaps a better educational directive from the Military would be an appropriate measure since the reported cases far out way those of the H1N1 Swine Flu or Novel Influenza.

Just last week, an HIV positive soldier was punished for having unprotected sex.  The 37-year-old aviation electronics technician was sentenced to three months’ confinement and a bad-conduct discharge after pleading guilty to two counts of aggravated assault as well as disobeying an order.   http://hamptonroads.com/2009/10/hivpositive-sailor-punished-having-unprotected-sex
