CDC names Columbus most sexually diseased city in Georgia

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The city of Columbus has garnered an unflattering honor, according to a recent study. 

According to numbers from the CDC, Columbus ranks as the most sexually diseased city in the state of Georgia and 40th nationally.

The number is based off of a 2013 CDC report, which is the newest available data on STDs in the U.S.
