The Egypt’s military has claimed that it has invented a device which can be used to cure HIV AIDS, hepatitis and other viruses.
Egyptian military officials had earlier promised to reveal the technology to the public this coming Monday; however, it seems they have rowed back onclaims, saying that the device will need a further six months of testing.
Scientific experts including former president Mansour’s own adviser, have widely panned the claims by Egypt’s military and said the claims have no scientific basis.
The device was first presented to the audience by major General Ibrahim Abdulatty in February and was described as being able to detect illnesses including Aids and hepatitis C, without taking blood samples and also purify the blood of those suffering from the diseases.
However, Egypt’s head of army Engineering Agency said scientific integrity mandates that the start of the public release of the device be delayed untilthe experimentation period is over to allow for a follow up with patients already using it.
In the meantime, the Saturday’s news conference only referred to hepatitis and notably dropped any mention of the devices as a cure for HIV AIDS.
