Sex Superbug Strain Of Gonorrhea HO41 Worse Than AIDS

A ‘sex superbug’ strain of Gonorrhea may be worse than AIDS based upon preliminary reports.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, sex superbugs are super dangerous and super expensive according to new studies. Sex bugs are resistant to antibiotics, they multiply by the billions, and they thrive in environments that would kill off most other living organisms.

This gonorrhea bacteria strain is being called a sex superbug because it also has become antibiotic resistant. Oral sex can even spread this sex superbug. Gonorrhea in general reportedly affect more than 800,000 people a year.

AIDS has killed nearly 30 million people worldwide, but Alan Christianson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine, says this new gonorrhea sex superbug might be worse:

“This might be a lot worse than AIDS in the short run because the bacteria is more aggressive and will affect more people quickly. Getting gonorrhea from this strain might put someone into septic shock and death in a matter of days. This is very dangerous.”

The first time this sex superbug version of the gonorrhea strain HO41 was discovered was in Japan in 2009. While some reports claimed the gonorrhea sex superbug had spread to Hawaii, California, and Norway, but the CDC has been careful to point out that there have been no gonorrhea treatment failures in the United States. The HO41 gonorrhea sex superbug has also never caused a death so far.

Nikki Mays, a spokeswoman for the CDC, said the H041 strain of the gonorrhea sex superbug has not been detected in the United States:

“Ceftriaxone is the drug the CDC recommends for the first-line treatment of gonorrhea. This strain hasn’t been detected elsewhere, and ceftriaxone resistance has not been detected in the United States.”
