Florida Department of Health statistics show that new HIV cases in three counties in the Treasure Coast area of the state climbed in 2002, the Vero Beach, Fla., Press Journal reports. In Martin County, new HIV cases rose 9% in 2002 over 2001 levels; in Okeechobee County new infections were up 6%; and in St. Lucie County new cases were up 7% in 2002. Health officials aren't sure whether the increases are due to people more frequently engaging in unprotected sex or due to a statewide HIV testing campaign.
