Gonorrhoea is on the rise due to a decline in condom use during oral sex, the World Health Organisation warns.

The drug-resistant STI can spread from the throat of an infected person without them even knowing that they have the disease as in most cases, there are no symptoms.

Subsequently, resistance to treatment via antibiotics is increasing, with more than 50 countries reporting futile use of ESCs – the single medically-approved group of drugs that remain effective in treating the illness.
