The scientific world rejoiced on Friday after news broke that North Korea had discovered a cure for AIDS… and Ebola.
The Korea Central News Agency revealed the discovery late on Thursday evening, with scientists trumpeting the Kumdang-2 drug as a cure for the both the deadly virus and the fatal infection.
According to the state-run news service, the drug is made from ginseng, which is grown from fertilizer and mixed with “micro-quantities of gold and platinum.”
The Kumdang-2 website notes that it also cures “malicious virus infections,” including SARS and MERS thanks to drug’s qualities as a “strong immune reviver.”
According to regime-friendly websites, the drug was first developed in 1996, and was used during the 2006 outbreak of bird flu.
So well done Kim Jong-un and the scientists of North Korea. What a wonderful gift to humanity.
Unless they’re lying…
