Are any of you aware that the sexually transmitted disease, gonorrhea, is rapidly becoming untreatable?

Gonorrhea is one of the sexually transmitted diseases that is most often seen in Health Clinics. However, a new strain of this disease has appeared & it is not responding to the antibiotics used to treat this disease. This is a link to the information.

This worries me. Just think of all of the young people in the US who might end up infected with this?
