Egyptian inventor ready to ‘test AIDS-detecting machine’
Major General Ibrahim Abdul Atti claims that his ‘phenomenal device will turn Egypt into a top destination for health tourism’.
After two years of silence, an Egyptian inventor says he is ready to test his machine that he claims can cure AIDS and Hepatitis C.
Following two years of “forced silence”, Major General Ibrahim Abdul Atti spoke to Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm and said he is working on the creation of a device that has already caused uproar among scientists and public alike.
Abdul Atti claimed also said that his “phenomenal device will turn Egypt into a top destination for health tourism”.
“Americans will seek medical care in Egypt considering the frugal cost of the treatment which is less than a price of a box of cigarettes,” he told Al-Masry Al-Youm.
When asked why he decided to call his invention the “CC Device”, Abdul Atti said it stood for “Complete Cure Devise and that all other claims are lies launched by my rivals who are plotting against my invention”.
Many on social media were quick to respond the likeness of the device’s name to Egyptian President Abdul Fatah el-Sisi.
Egypt has the highest prevalence of hepatitis C virus in the world, estimated to infect at least 1 in 10 of the population aged 15 to 59.
