ANI  |  Washington 

Seems like fortunes are turning better for North Korea as the country recently announced that they have created a drug that can allegedly both cure and prevent MERS, Ebola, Sars and AIDS.

The official Korean Central News Agency announced that malicious virus infections were related to immune systems, so they could be easily treated by Kumdang-2 injection drug, which is a strong immune reviver, reported E! Online.

However, despite of the big announcement, no proof of the miracle cure has been provided, triggering skepticism among many.

North Korea's claim comes as rival country is battling an intense outbreak of the Middle East respiratory syndrome (Mers).

But, despite the virus' spread to Eastern Asia, Kwon Deok-cheol, an official with the Ministry of Health and Welfare leading MERS task force said that looking at the current trend; they have judged that situation has leveled off.
