UK is to blame for 55% of Europe's 'gonorrhoea epidemic'

UK is to blame for 55% of Europe's 'gonorrhoea epidemic' Gonorrhoea cases shot up by 13,000 across Europe last year as figures show the UK continues to be the continent's clap capital.

Reports of the STI rose by 17 per cent in 2017 to almost 90,000, in what one expert has called an 'epidemic' – and more than half of them happened in the UK.

There are now 22.2 cases of gonorrhoea per 100,000 people in the EU, the worst rate for at least four years.

And the UK's rate is more than three times as bad, with 74.7 in every 100,000 people diagnosed with the painful sexually transmitted infection. The Daily Mail
