The US federal agency, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), took to Twitter to warn Americans that they are risking becoming infected with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) by using a condom twice.
The CDC also attached a link to its website, where users can find out more about correctly using condoms, and how to reduce the risk of STDs, including HIV and viral hepatitis. The agency pointed out that they also provided protection against such diseases as Zika or Ebola – that may also be transmitted through sex.
The warning triggered a Twitter-quake, with some ridiculing those who may actually wash condoms and sarcastically suggesting other options:

Well, what the hell am I supposed to with all these condoms in the dishwasher now?— What a Stupid Time to be Alive (@mrd125) 25 июля 2018 г.
What about using one that someone else has used, or is that not good either?— Brian (@drasca00) 25 июля 2018 г.
The lion’s share simply couldn’t believe that people are really reusing condoms:
