    A man in the UK has caught the world's "worst-ever" case of super-gonorrhoea.
    from

    the BBC news

    http://www.bbc.com/news/health-43571120

    He had a regular partner in the UK, but picked up the superbug after a sexual encounter with a woman in South East Asia.

    Public Health England says it is the first time the infection cannot be cured with first choice antibiotics.

    Health officials are now tracing any other sexual partners of the man, who has not been identified, in an attempt to contain the infection's spread.

    He picked up the infection earlier in the year.

    The main antibiotic treatment - a combination of azithromycin and ceftriaxone - has failed to treat the disease.

    Dr Gwenda Hughes, from Public Health England, said: "This is the first time a case has displayed such high-level resistance to both of these drugs and to most other commonly used antibiotics."

    Discussions with the World Health Organization and the European Centres for Disease Control agree this is a world first.

    One final night in South East Asia then back to the UK and his boring life. If only he could do something to gain fame and notoriety, suddenly he realized there was a chance to achieve his dream of fame and perhaps a write up in the BBC, his ticket would be the 'snorting condom challenge'. He would use his last condom for the challenge, after all, what better way to use the condom to his benefit? Fame would be be just around the corner.

    If you say it loud enough
    You'll always sound precocious

    Even though the sound of it
    Is something quite atrocious

    What happens in Southeast Asia doesn't always stay in Southeast Asia.
