P/500 असे लिहलेल्या गोळ्यांचे तापाचे औषध घेऊ नये… हे नवीन औषध एक अत्यंत पांढरी शुभ्र आणि चमकदार Paracetamol(तापाची गोळी) आहे.
डॉक्टरांच्या माहीतीप्रमाणे सिद्ध केले आहे की यात “Machupo Virus व्हायरस(विषाणू) जो जगातील सर्वात धोकादायक व्हायरसपैकी एक मानला जातोय आणि या औषधामुळे मृत्युचे प्रमाण खूप जास्त आहे .
सर्व लोकांना आणि कुटुंबांना हा संदेश शेअर करा, आपल्या या कार्यामुळे त्यांचाही जीव वाचू शकतो ….. माझं कर्तव्य मी पूर्ण केले, चालूच राहील… आता आपली वेळ आहे …
लक्षात ठेवा, देव त्यांनाच मदत करतो जे इतरांना मदत करतात.

More about Machupo Virus:
Bolivian hemorrhagic fever (BHF), also known as black typhus or Ordog Fever, is a hemorrhagic fever and zoonotic infectious disease originating in Bolivia after infection by Machupo virus.
In February and March 2007, some 20 suspected BHF cases (3 fatal) were reported to the El Servicio Departamental de Salud (SEDES) in Beni Department, Bolivia, and in February 2008, at least 200 suspected new cases (12 fatal) were reported to SEDES. In November 2011, a SEDES expert involved in a serosurvey to determine the extent of Machupo virus infections in the Department after the discovery of a second confirmed case near the departmental capital of Trinidad in November, 2011, expressed concern about expansion of the virus’ distribution outside the endemic zone in Mamoré and Iténez provinces.
