Drug-Resistant Gonorrhea Spreading, Says World Health Organization

The World Health Organization (WHO) is warning doctors and nurses around the world about the potential spread of drug resistant gonorrhea, urging them to be vigilant in spotting the disease and taking steps to stop its spread.

“This organism has basically been developing resistance against every medication we’ve thrown at it,” Dr. Manjula Lusti-Narasimhan, a scientist in the WHO’s department of sexually transmitted diseases told The Associated Press.

Pretty soon, according to the WHO, the bacteria will not respond to antibiotics at all.

“There is much to do, and the threat of untreatable gonorrhea is emerging rapidly,” authors wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine.
