England’s chief medical officer Dame Sally Davies writes to all GPs and pharmacies after rise of drug-resistant strain
The strain, which is resistant to first-line antibiotic azithromycin, was first reported in Leeds in March but spread, with cases reported in patients from Macclesfield, Oldham and Scunthorpe.
In her letter, the BBC reported that the chief medical officer said: “Gonorrhoea is at risk of becoming an untreatable disease due to the continuing emergence of antimicrobial resistance.”
