Guinea Ebola

According to reports by This Day Newspaper  at least two people are feared dead, while 20 others have been  hospitalised in various hospitals in Plateau State after consuming excessive quantity of salt and bitter kola to prevent Ebola Virus Disease .

According to the publication, the two who were rushed to the hospital by family members, collapsed in the morning after consuming too much salt over night.

They reportedly later died of high blood pressure in the hospital.
The medical personnel in the hospitals where other patients are currently taking treatment in Jos, said the patients developed ulcer, while others stool profusely, having consumed the table salt in excess.

Why do we always exaggerate things, even if the  rumour was true, why should you consume in excess. It is not common knowledge that too much of everything is bad? Oh Nigeria!!!
