A new study shows the following:
The prevalence of herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2) has increased by 32% since the late 1970's.

22% of people over the age of 12 have HSV-2 infections.

Up to 90% of people infected with HSV-2 are unaware they have genital herpes.

Genital herpes can be spread when no sores are present.

A group of people who did not even know they have herpes were found to be shedding virus 3% of the time.
