'Supergonorrhea' is spreading around the world: it is resistant to antibiotics and cannot be cured

According to the World Health Organization, "supergonorrhea" refers to a strain that has a high level of resistance to currently recommended treatments.

If multidrug-resistant strains of gonorrhea begin to spread, many STDs could become untreatable.

A report published last week in Eurosurveillance warned that the new strain could pose a "serious global public health threat," according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control.

“If such strains manage to establish sustained transmission, many cases of gonorrhea could become untreatable,” the report says.

The report details that a man in his 50s had unprotected sex with a sex worker in Cambodia in April 2022, and five days later felt pain when urinating and witnessed penile discharge.

He was given antibiotics, which relieved his symptoms, but additional tests still showed a positive result, so he was additionally treated with a penicillin-containing antibiotic called coamoxiclav.

If left untreated, gonorrhea can cause infertility in both women and men, increase the risk of contracting HIV/AIDS, or spread to the joints and other parts of the body, according to the Mayo Clinic.
