11 July 2017 - Gonorrhoea
Coincidence or not? From August 2016 we have had the odd article telling the public that Gonorrhea is becoming untreatable (http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/08/30/491969011/u-n-health-officials-warn-gonorrhea-is-becoming-untreatable), then starting 4 days ago every major mainstream news media published articles based on a notification by the WHO(https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-gonorrhoea-idUSKBN19R37G), bumping the fear factor of gonorrhea. And lo and behold this news release of today, a mere 4 days later, showing that an existing Glaxo-Smith-Klein meningitis vaccine might just do the trick. Lets be clear about this, I am not dissing the drug, but the pre-marketing on a global scale where fear-based marketing is proven to sell the best.
