A strain of gonorrhoea is being called a “super-STD” as it rapidly spreads around the world and proves it is impervious to any current medication that is out in the market.

Experts, who are looking in to the new virus known as H041, fear that the infection could soon become a global threat.

Gonorrhoea, which H041 is said to be a strain of, is an easily treatable infection transmitted through sexual intercourse and effects an estimated 700,000 a year, making it one of the most common STD’s.

According to MSN, Dr Magnus Unemo, from Orebro University Hospital in Sweden, who is part of the team that discovered the new virus, said: "This is both an alarming and a predictable discovery.

Since antibiotics became the standard treatment for gonorrhoea in the 1940s, this bacterium has shown a remarkable capacity to develop resistance mechanisms to all drugs introduced to control it.

"While it is still too early to assess if this new strain has become widespread, the history of newly-emergent resistance in the bacterium suggests that it may spread rapidly unless new drugs and effective treatment programmes are developed."
