Fake panacea

A tall, dark, suspicious-looking fellow, jumped into the bus when it was about to leave for the nation’s capital. He brandished a concoction which he claimed was a panacea as there was no illness in the world it would not cure.

Many of the passengers were excited about the mixture which to them was the end of their health troubles. They bought at least a bottle each.

But whether it helped them or not, it’s hard to say. What I know is the next day the Chief Medical Officer in the main hospital in the capital city issued a statement cautioning people not to be duped buy what some ‘quacks were brandishing as a panacea.” He said there was no medication in the world that was capable of curing all illnesses.”
