Drug Resistant Form Of Gonorrhea Coming To United States

Bill Clinton is doomed now.
Here’s the good news about gonorrhea: It’s still a treatable sexually transmitted infection.
The bad news: It may not be for much longer.
Cases of antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea have been found in other parts of the world, including the UK, where the country’s chief medical officer Dame Sally Davies warned about the rise of “super gonorrhea” in a recent letter to physicians and pharmacies.
The highly adaptable disease, which has been around for more than 2,000 years, once responded to a range of antibiotics.
Now the options are far slimmer: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a dual treatment of two antibiotics, ceftriaxone and azithromycin as the only viable cure.

Thank You Marketwatch and Bill.

Which reminds us:

What happened to that rush of Ebola patients who had to be brought back here Stateside for treatment?

IF, we were given to ruminating on unsubstantiated conspiracy theorizing, we might suspect our friends in Govt were only interested in dragging the patients back here long enough to collect a full course of Ebola specimens, in order to weaponize the disease.
