Default Syphilis could become impossible to treat after a common strain of the STI has become resistant to antibiotics

There are two relatively common types of syphilis: Nichols and Street Strain 14
Swiss researchers discovered the most frequent type of the STI to be SS14-Ω
However, 90% of the samples they analysed were resistant to antibiotics
Cases of the bacterial infection have shot up by 71% in England since 2011
