Scientists Say They've Discovered New STD that Kills Just Within Days

Saturday, January 25, 2014



Scientists say they've discovered a new sexually transmitted super-bug which is more deadly than Aids and kills in a few days.

According to reports, an antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea is more aggressive than the HIV virus, which means the potential to infect the public will be greater. This strain of STD which is resistant to antibiotic, reportedly kills half of those exposed and infects one in 20 hospital patients thereby raising the threat of an outbreak to emergency levels.

Alan Christianson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine, said, “Getting gonorrhea from this strain might put someone into septic shock and death in a matter of days,” adding that it is very dangerous.

Also speaking, executive director of the National Coalition of STD Directors, William Smith said, “It’s an emergency situation. As time moves on, it’s getting more hazardous.”

Like most STDs, gonorrhea is usually transmitted through unprotected sexual contact and if left untreated, can cause severe medical complications, such as infertility in women, debilitating pain, sterility in men and life threatening heart infections.
