Oral s3x is causing the spread of a dangerous gonorrhea super-bug, experts have warned. The untreatable strain of gonorrhea is rapidly spreading across the world putting millions of lives at risk, the World Health Organisation has warned.
Experts said that incurable gon0rrhea has started to spread after becoming resistant to antibiotics, which has been partly caused by oral s3x and a decline in condom use.
The s3xually transmitted bacteria can live at the back of the throat and, because of this, has been evolve immunity to antibiotics used to treat common throat infections.
The World Health Organization (WHO) issued a warning after it confirmed that three people had contracted the super-bug.
‘Gonorrhea is a very smart bug,’ said Teodora Wi, a human reproduction specialist at the Geneva-based UN health agency.
‘Every time you introduce a new type of antibiotic to treat it, this bug develops resistance to it.’
