Overuse of antibiotics for COVID-19 to blame in ‘super gonorrhea’ spike
Lee Brown, NY Post, Dec 22, 2020

Azithromycin, a common antibiotic used to treat chest and sinus infections, has been used during the pandemic to prevent co-infection of hospitalized coronavirus patients and to treat inflammatory symptoms of severe infections. But the widespread doling out of the drug — which has since been found to have no clinical benefit for COVID-19 patients — has caused a buildup of resistance to the bacteria that causes gonorrhea, the World Health Organization (WHO) told the Sun.

"It's very, very rare" to get reinfected, he said.
