STD clinics should be free. Poor show, US!

Well, they blame it on the lack of public health funding, in general, and "reduced frequency of in-person healthcare services" "diversion of health workers from STD work to respond to the COVID pandemic," "STD test and lab supply shortages," and "lapses in health insurance due to unemployment."

Must be congressional appropriations time again. No problem too small or large that shouldn't be solved with lots of money thrown at it.
