Miriam Stoppard – June 2, 2016
Gonorrhoea was relatively benign in years gone by, going by the name “the clap” and was easily treated with penicillin.
Now it’s a monster. A super-resistant form is cutting a swath through straight and gay communities.
When it emerged in Leeds last year, the new superbug prompted a national alert when one of the main treatments became useless against it.
Cases of super gonorrhoea have now been detected in the West Midlands, London and southern England.
