Some people just aren’t taking any chances. And under the circumstances, can you really blame them?
For those who are unlucky enough to catch the dreaded coronavirus, a boozy remedy may be at hand:
The first Briton believed to have been diagnosed with coronavirus reckons he cured himself with “hot whisky and honey.”
Teacher Connor Reed, 25, told the Sun that he thought he was “going to die” when he was hospitalized two months ago in Wuhan, the Chinese city at the center of the outbreak that has killed more than 360 people.
Yet he claims he refused to take antibiotics — and instead used an inhaler and “drank a hot whisky with honey until that ran out.”
“It’s an old-fashioned remedy but it seemed to do the trick,” he told the UK paper. “I am proof coronavirus can be beaten.”
Hero! Give this man a bloody medal.
