Sri Lanka health minister drinks magic potion

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Sri Lanka’s health minister, who has faced criticism for consuming and endorsing a herbal syrup made by a sorcerer, has tested positive for Covid-19.

A Health Ministry official confirmed on Saturday that Pavithra Wanniarachchi is the highest-ranking official to be infected with the virus. She and her immediate contacts have been asked to self-quarantine.

Doctors have said there is no scientific basis for the syrup, reportedly containing honey and nutmeg, as a remedy for coronavirus.

Thousands of people formed long queues in the village of Bandara, north-east of the capital, Colombo, in December to obtain the syrup, just days after Ms Wanniarachchi and several other government officials publicly consumed it.

Given the accuracy of PCR testing  I'm still not sure who is right here.

Good grief, just when we thought we had it bad with Donald Trump .... and to think that Sri Lanka was on my bucket list.

You can test pcr multiple times to eliminate bad results.
