Consumers Dating with Herpes Should be Required by the Government to Disclose their Positive Status

Statistics show that more fifty-million people are infected with herpes. That is an incredibly large group of people which is why many organizations are encouraging the government to step in to require consumers dating with herpes to disclose their positive status to new partners. Programs can be implemented so people can get tested then disclose their status to others.

Hundreds of new herpes dating sites UK are popping up all over the Internet in order to fill the growing demand as more and more people all over the world are becoming infected. According to a research team on the website, the government can do more to prevent the spread of the disease to innocent people. One of the principles on the popular website said, "We understand the constitution protects consumer's privacy, but what about those healthy people that are getting infected? What about their rights."

HSV-1 and HSV-2 are viruses that cause herpes. They can easily be found in the sores that the viruses cause, but oftentimes the sores aren't visible so people who are infected appear to be healthy. The problem begins when the sores aren't visible on the skin and the infected person has sex without disclosing their status.

Those who perform oral sex will get infected in the mouth as the disease infects the areas of skin which come into contact with an infected person. Generally, a person can only get an HSV-2 infection during sexual contact with someone who has a genital HSV-2 infection. Transmission can occur from an infected partner who does not have a visible sore and may not know that he or she is infected.

Online dating herpes websites provide statistics and other information for their members, but there is very little they can do to stop the spread of the diseases. The government should begin immediately to implement programs that help those infected with the disease figure out ways to disclose their positive status.
