North Korea Says It Has A Miracle Drug That Cures Ebola, AIDS And MERS

North Korea claims to possess a drug that can cure MERS, Ebola, SARS and, yes, AIDS.

According to The Huffington Post, a report from the state-run Korean Central News Agency announced earlier today scientists mixed ginseng grown from fertilizer with "rare-earth elements" to produce a drug known as Kumdang-2.

The drug was first created in 1996 and had previously been hailed by North Korea as a cure for the bird flu epidemics of 2006 and 2013.

This suggests the "2" is featured to represent a modified version of the treatment.

KCNA said,

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.

North Korea responded to the Ebola outbreak by forbidding all foreign tourism for six months.

No infections had been reported anywhere near the isolated and oppressive country where respiratory diseases such as tuberculosis are responsible for a large amount of deaths.

Today's announcement featured no studies or evidence of any kind.

It was most likely a jab at longtime enemy South Korea, which is currently in the grips of an outbreak of MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome), which has no vaccination.

The disease has killed two dozen people and rendered more than 160 ill in less than two months.

KCNA also reported last April supreme leader Kim Jong-un had climbed North Korea's highest mountain while apparently wearing his trademark black jacket and shoes.
