Report reaching liveschoolnews.org news desk has it that, At least two persons have been feared killed and 20 others hospitalised in various hospitals in Plateau State after consuming excessive quantity of salt and bitter kola to prevent Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) attack.
The two, according to a source in Shendam who spoke with our reporter on phone, were rushed to the hospital by their family members after they suddenly collapsed in the morning, having consumed too much of salt over night.
Liveschoolnews.com.ng grapevine gathered that the two later died of high blood pressure in the hospitals.
According to medical personnel in the hospitals where the other patients are currently taking treatment in Jos, some developed ulcer, while others stool profusely, having consumed the table salt in excess.
Nigerians are still too gullible to have believed this rumour. Ebola is a virus and not a worm. Human urine and sweat contain good quantity of salt, yet, Ebola Virus operates through them. How come we believe too easily that bathing and drinking salt and water prevents it?
May their soul rest in peace.
