New Gonorrhea Strain could be deadlier than AIDS – Experts Warn

According to reports, the antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea HO41 was found in Japan two years ago in a 31-year-old female sex worker.

Doctors have warned about an “aggressive” new sexually-transmitted superbug that could ultimately prove more deadly than AIDS.

According to reports, the antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea HO41 was found in Japan two years ago in a 31-year-old female sex worker.

Alan Christianson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine, recently told the Media that the superbug might be a lot worse than AIDS in the short run, as the bacteria is more aggressive and will affect more people quickly.

He said that getting this strain of  gonorrhea  may put a person into septic shock and death in a matter of days; he claimed that the bug was very dangerous.

William Smith, executive director of the National Coalition of STD Directors, reportedly said that it is an emergency situation and as time moves on, the bug is getting more hazardous.

Smith urged Congressional lawmakers as late as last week to allocate additional funding – 54 million dollars – to develop an antibiotic capable of fighting HO41 as well as to conduct a public awareness campaign.
