Policy Snack: What's Up with SOFA?

Hudson-New York has launched a new website with a novel idea: giving readers a concise, pin-pointed morsel of thought on a contemporary issue. I'll be contributing on Thursdays, and this is my first piece: Which Definition of Iraqi Patriotism?

Hopefully, such pieces would give all you readers a welcome respite from my usual long-windedness on this blog. Correction: the Sunday in question refers to Oct. 19; I had submitted the piece last week.

Nibras,

Thank you for that insight. I wondered what the holdup was. Iraqis becoming patriots instead of sectarians is a monumental development. SOFA or no SOFA, that right there is great news.

2020.06.19酒店小姐的基本介紹跟工作內容今年4月國內出現首例酒店女公關確診武漢肺炎,為防堵疫情,中央流行疫情指揮中心宣布,自4月9日起,全國酒店、舞廳停止營業,直到5月中疫情趨緩,各縣市才陸續解除禁令,但在我在酒店上班的日子八大行業歇業期間不敢來酒店上班-酒店打工的原因,淋病感染卻意外激增,5月底確診數竟比過去3年同期平均數上升逾8成,醫師推測酒店上班-酒店兼職-兼差如何達成人生的第一桶金,這與性交易轉往地下化有關。根據疾病管制署酒店兼差不是一個複雜的工作環境?傳染病統計資料,性傳染病中淋病感染者近期顯著上升,比較2017、2018、2019與今年1月到6月初數據職場須知 【酒店PT 】,發現2017年在這段時間累計有2166例,2018年同期則有1903例,2019年同期為1875人確診,但2020年同期則有2574人確診,比前3年都高。再細看國內八大行業禁令與淋病成長趨勢,可發現淋病確診在八大行業4月9日喊卡當周有109例,到了5月第2周升高至135例,接下來有些微下降,但到5月最後1周又飆到142例,創下今年單周最高紀錄,和前3年同期平均數相較,更足足暴漲86.6%,且到了下一周、即6月第一周,仍有133 例,顯示疫情仍在高峰。至於同樣是性病的梅毒,確診個案則未明顯增加。針對八大行業禁令與淋病感染增加的關係,林口長庚醫院男性學及婦女泌尿科主任陳煜說,應與消費生態與客群產生變化有關,因酒店的消費較高,帶出場的門檻也高,但酒店歇業後,小姐還是要生活,只好轉入地下,進行性交易的頻率可能提高,才導致淋病增加。陳煜解釋,過去有研究發現,私下進行性交易的客群,以中下層、低消費的族群較多,而這些人使用保險套的情形也較不普遍,發生性病的風險偏高。淋病感染激增,梅毒疫情卻沒有擴大,對此陳煜認為,染淋症狀明顯,常有尿道灼熱感,且性器會流出黃綠色濃液,而梅毒感染初期可能僅有輕微的皰疹,較不容易發現,所以才有兩種性病趨勢大不同的特殊現象。疾管署副署長莊人祥說,近期確實發現淋病確診明顯增加,從年齡層分析,以20歲到29歲增幅最大,比去年1月至5月增逾300例;30歲到39歲也增約百例,且男多於女,增加個案以六都為主;至於與八大行業禁令的關係,他則說,詳細原因仍待疾管署進行相關調查。
