Concerns are mounting over a powerful new form of gonorrhea after a patient was found to have the highest level of drug resistance to the disease ever reported in Australia.
It is understood the patient, a tourist from central Europe, contracted the ‘sex superbug’ in Sydney and was eventually treated in Cairns.


The discovery of the case in Australia, which resulted in a health alert in July, has also prompted warnings in New Zealand, where sexual health clinics are on high alert amid fears the new strain will spread there.
