Well, this emerging news of “medical research” out of North Korea ranks right up there with its previous dictator Kim Jong-Il claiming he once shot a 38-under-par round of golf (it included 11 aces!!!).
Apparently, his son, Kim Jong-Un, just had to find a way to climb one rung higher than his father on the Dear Leader completely fucking audacious ladder.
The New York Times is reporting that the North Korean state is now claiming to have developed a cure for Ebola, AIDS, and MERS. Oh, and SARS too! Can’t forget that ravaging, viral form of pneumonia that killed both the first identified case and the doctor who diagnosed it, before spreading worldwide to kill thousands in 2003.
Yeah, apparently North Korea has that covered, too! And you guys want to know the best part!? They made it easy for everyone, and combined all four vaccines for these terrible diseases – which have baffled the most brilliant minds in medical research for decades – INTO ONE SINGLE DRUG!
The authoritarian, impoverished nation better known for pursuing a nuclear program despite global criticism announced Friday it has a drug can prevent and cure MERS, Ebola, SARS and AIDS.
The secretive state did not provide proof, and the claim is likely to provoke widespread skepticism.
The official Korean Central News Agency said scientists developed Kumdang-2 from ginseng grown from fertilizer mixed with rare-earth elements. According to the pro-North Korea website Minjok Tongshin, the drug was originally produced in 1996.
“Malicious virus infections like SARS, Ebola and MERS are diseases that are related to immune systems, so they can be easily treated by Kumdang-2 injection drug, which is a strong immune reviver,” KCNA said.
No shit they refuse to provide any proof…because that’s what liars habitually do!
Ginseng and “rare-earth elements,” ehhhh? Sounds like they’re pretty much curing Ebola with iced-tea. Monumental stuff if it was true…but everyone knows that it isn’t.
What a spectacular lie to lie, Kim Jong-Un! Seriously, you’ve overdid yourself this time, and my side honestly hurts from laughing so hard. This claim is just so ridiculous and audacious you have to laugh. It’s like North Korea takes the rest of the world for a fool when they say outlandish shit like this. Does Un actually think that people would take this shit seriously?
I can’t help but think of the guy these days without simultaneously having the chorus of Katy Perry’s “Firework” blaring in the background!
It is believed to be struggling to combat diseases such as tuberculosis, and respiratory infections are among its most common causes of death, according to the World Health Organization.
North Korea trumpeted the same drug during deadly bird flu outbreaks in 2006 and 2013.
The North’s claim comes as rival South Korea fights an outbreak of MERS that has killed two dozen people and sickened more than 160 since last month. There is no vaccine for the disease.
Good effort this time, Kim. Good try.
