Thanks to Makoto for incredulously tweeting the link to this RTG Guinea Conakry story in Senego.net: Ebola virus: the consumption of the recommended onion. The Google translation, lightly edited:
An African researcher who is not to reveal the name here told me with conviction that the solution to this would be Ebola onion.
In effect, the patient must eat for 3-7 days following recipe: a well crushed or crushed onion, we add a teaspoon of condensed milk and a teaspoon of powdered coffee (Nescafe). Stir the three ingredients and serve to the patient.
For those not yet sick who shelter the virus, the same researcher informs me that they must eat every day 1-2 fresh onions.
There is no question here of propaganda; it is a proposed aid to the population of a country at risk from an epidemic that has no vaccine and continues to claim victims.
Author of the article: Just a tip of a Guinean citizen living in Senegal, track to be taken seriously.
As Makoto says, "Ce n'est pas possible!"
