Man Contracts 'World Worst' Super-Gonorrhea

Brit man first victim of 'SUPER GONORRHOEA' after one-night stand in holiday hotspot

A British man caught a super gonorrhea that is resistant to antibiotics and only realized this after the first choice antibiotics failed. "Every time we use a new class of antibiotics to treat the infection, the bacteria evolve to resist them", Teodora Wi, a human reproduction specialist at the World Health Organization, said previous year. "PHE actively monitors, and acts on, the spread of antibiotic resistance in gonorrhea and potential treatment failures, and has introduced enhanced surveillance to identify and manage resistant strains of infection promptly to help reduce further spread".

"This is the first time a case has displayed such high-level resistance to both of these drugs and to most other commonly used antibiotics", said Gwenda Hughes, PhD, consultant scientist and head of the sexually transmitted infection section at Public Health England. There have cases of the bacteria developing resistance to cephalosporins, the current first-line treatment for gonorrhoea.

He added that it has put the sexual health services at a "tipping point", with the clinic closures coming at possibly the worst time. Results for the next urine test will be available by mid-April. The 2016 Review on Antimicrobial Resistance Final Report and Recommendations states that antibiotic resistant infection will kill an extra 10 million people a year worldwide - more than now die from cancer - by 2050 unless action is taken. Wellbeing authorities are now following some other sexual accomplices of the man, who has not been recognized, trying to contain the disease's spread. It spreads through sexual contact that includes vaginal intercourse, anal intercourse and giving and receiving oral sex.

A few months ago, the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that the percentage of gonorrhea that did not respond to azithromycin alone had increased significantly.

North, South Korea agree to hold summit
The countries earlier this month agreed to hold a leaders' summit on the southern side of the border village. China has expressed support for the April meeting, commending the two sides for agreeing on a summit.

The WHO gathered data from 2009 to 2014 showing that gonorrhea was becoming increasingly resistant to ciprofloxacin, azithromycin, and ceftriaxone.

Be that as it may, side effects can incorporate a thick green or yellow release from sexual organs, torment when urinating and seeping between periods. Left untreated, the infection can cause other serious health problems, including long-term abdominal pain and pelvic inflammatory disease.

World Health Organization suggests that there should be a quick development of new drugs to combat super gonorrhea.
