Gonorrhea And UTIs

Gonorrhea is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections with about 106 million new cases reported each year. In addition, an estimated 36 million people are infected with the bacteria. It is spread through oral, vaginal and anal sex. While it is curable, a new strain of gonorrhoea is shown to have effectively mutated against antibiotic treatments.

Microbiologist Dr Kartini Abdul Jabar joins consultant urologist, Dr George Lee to discuss the latest developments in the world of microbial infections.
