Media reports of drug-resistant gonorrhea in Hawaii overblown

Link

So it sounds like this story making the rounds like seen here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2319818/Sex-superbug-feared-infectious-AIDS-discovered-Hawaii.html is actually false.

The linked article is the actual case study of the incident and it wasn’t the same strain. It was a highly drug resistant strain but not the incurable and deadly HO41.

Also, a good little follow-up to calm the fears of HO41 being “worse than AIDS”.
