Gonorrhea, or sometimes referred to as The Clap is making an aggressive comeback.   According to the World Health Organization (WHO) says that around 78 million new gonorrhea infections occur each year.  New data from 77 countries show that antibiotic resistance is making gonorrhea much harder and sometimes impossible, to treat. 

The new strain can be hard to distinguish from typical symptoms of other types of throat infections like Strep throat or a typical sore throat. 

The antibiotic strain can be shared through traditional sex as well oral sex and more designer life choices.  The new super gonorrhea is eliminating treatment options.   The standard treatment for gonorrhea is an intramuscular injection of ceftriaxone and oral azithromycin, the super g is making that a thing of the past.
