Egypt ‘Invents Devices To Detect World’s Deadliest Diseases’

A scientific division linked to Egypt’s Military and led by Major General Ibrahim Abdel-Atti declared and showed off multiple devices that detect some of the world’s deadliest diseases.

“We took I don’t know what and put it with I don’t know what and made the coronavirus detecting device in a week,” said the Major General in his statements about how Egypt was able to invent a MERS coronavirus detecting device in such a short period of time.

The devices were shown off at an event titled ‘The Revolution in Diagnosis,’ held by the scientific division, which earlier this year claimed it had found a cure for both HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C. The cure announced earlier this year came in the form of the ‘Complete Cure Device,’ which, according to the Major General, draws blood from the patient, eliminates the disease and returns the disease-free blood back to the body.

Yet, this latest event highlighting the new devices has re-instigated controversy surrounding the scientific group’s alleged discoveries. According to the group, the devices can detect viruses ranging from ‘Hepatitis B, HIV, Malaria, MERS Coronavirus and H1N1 (swine flu).’

However, the scientific group failed to realize that malaria was incorrectly listed as a ‘virus.’ Malaria is caused by parasitic protozoans of the genus Plasmodium: it is not a virus.

According to statements from the scientific team, the devices utilise electromagnetic waves to diagnose the deadly viruses without taking any blood samples. In video (below) by an attendee of the event, the device is shown as having an antenna which appears to follow a sample of Hepatitis held by another man wherever it goes.

The attendee, Mostafa Hussein,  asked the man holding the device to repeat the test while closing his eyes, but the man refused. Mostafa explains that it is possible the man has full control of the device, hence why they refused to repeat the test.

Despite objections and great controversy surrounding the so-called discoveries, the Major General and the team behind the devices has refused to explain exactly how the devices or the cures work. The lack of explanation was criticized by the Egyptian President’s Scientific Advisor who called the cures and devices a sham.

Nevertheless, Major General Abdel Atti remains steadfast, declaring that it is even possible for the group to create a cure for MERS Coronavirus soon.

MERS first emerged in Saudi Arabia in 2012 and has infected at least 400 people worldwide and killed more than 110. There is no vaccine or anti-viral treatment for MERS and the World Health Organization once warned that the virus has potential to cause a pandemic.
