Gonorrhea is becoming resistant to antibiotics:
Gonorrhoea strain found to be ‘resistant to antibiotics’
BBC – July 11, 2011
Scientists from the Swedish Reference Laboratory warn that the infection could now become a global threat to public health.

Gonorrhea almost exclusively affects fornicators and adulterers (and sometimes there offspring). It would not exist if people did not violate God’s commands on sexual morality. It can only be a threat to global health if people insist on violating biblical morality.
Gonorrhea Could Become a “Superbug.”
New data suggest that a sexually transmitted bacterium, gonorrhea, is becoming resistant to the only remaining antibiotic that still kills it. Should it become totally resistant to the drug, gonorrhea could be unstoppable. Untreated gonorrhea usually results in sterility—the inability to have children. “Researchers are seeing the emergence of gonorrhea that’s resistant to cephalosporin [this last antibiotic] in South East Asia. Typically, resistant strains from that part of the world migrate over to the U.S., and then spread from West to East… ‘The concern is that history tends to repeat itself… It’s following the same pattern that’s happened before,’” observed a CDC official (LiveScience.com, April 20, 2011). Christ noted that “pestilences” or disease epidemics would be prevalent at the time of the end (Luke 21:11). And God warned that failure to obey His laws would result in great and prolonged sicknesses (Deuteronomy 28:21-22, 59-62). Today, many people resist directives to remain faithful in marriage. Public health experts have long known that sexually transmitted infections are easy to prevent by simply following principles outlined in God’s law. One day we will see these diseases eradicated as people live by every word of God. “… If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I [am] the LORD who heals you” (Exodus 15:26).
The fact is that turning to biblical morality would eliminate gonorrhea, as well as all other STDs (now often called Sexually-Transmissible Infections, or STIs), like AIDS.
