‘Worse than AIDS’ – sex ‘superbug’ discovered in Japan called disaster in waiting

Russia Today: Doctors are warning that a drug-resistant strain of gonorrhea could be more deadly than AIDS, and are urging members of US Congress to spend $54 million for the development of a drug that would fight it.

“This might be a lot worse than AIDS in the short run because the bacteria is more aggressive and will affect more people quickly,” Alan Christianson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine, told CNBC.

The new strain of gonorrhea, H041, was first discovered in 2009 after a sex worker fell victim to the superbug in Japan. Medical officials reported that the medication-resilient ‘sex superbug’ was discovered in Hawaii in May 2011, and has since spread to California and Norway, the International Business Times reports.

Nearly 30 million people die from AIDS-related causes each year, and the H041 superbug could have similar consequences, according to Alan Christianson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine.

  1. Reminds me of something I heard a very long time ago when Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad, the later, fourth Ahmadiyya Khalifah, in a Q/A session I think, briefly recounted the STD history and warning of the plague of AIDS said that they may find a cure for it, but like each time before it, a new and worse STD will raise its head if the rules set by God are continually broken.
