Speaking of Deadly Viruses  

 

Muslims are still drinking raw camel urine (saheeh hadeeth) the suspected cause of the 2012 outbreak of “MERS” (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome).

MERS-CoV (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome-Corona virus), first identified in Saudi Arabia in 2012, likely came from an animal source in the Arabian Peninsula. It is a zoonotic disease, meaning it is transmitted between animals and people.

Scientific evidence suggests that people are “infected” through direct or indirect contact with infected dromedary camels in several countries, including Egypt, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Most “MERS” patients develop severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath. About 3 or 4 out of every 10 patients reported with MERS have died.

#Coronavirus #COVID19 Has religious people drinking cow and camel urine. This is what believing in supernatural superstition looks like. Be reasonable, stay indoors, and wash your hands.” pic.twitter.com/SoIhft34dp — Ex-Muslims of North America (@ExmuslimsOrg) March 21, 2020

So far nobody has yet called it “racist” to identify its origin. I guess “old habits” are hard to discard.
