Health officials have confirmed that 2 cases of a sex super-bug have surfaced in Hawaii. According to Hawaii News Now, the bug is a resistant strain of gonorrhea.
“The CDC is asking Congress for $50 million to find a new antibiotic to treat the disease. The sex superbug was first discovered in Japan but there are now confirmed cases of infection in Hawaii and California.”
Dr. Catherine Troisi is with the UT Health and Science Center and she says that it’s concerning, but still treatable.
She recommends that Americans follow the same safe sex practices as always. Use protection and get tested for STDs with your partner.
