SALT LAKE COUNTY (News4Utah)- The Salt Lake County Health Department has released a list of the most prevalent infectious diseases for 2017.
At the top? Two sexually transmitted diseases:
Hepatitis C (both acute and chronic)
Influenza (hospitalized cases)

In 2017, the department says they investigated over 14,000 reports of disease in the county.
