Important message from manila police to all over Philippines and India: for the next few weeks do not drink any product of COOL DRINK as a worker from the company has added his blood contaminated with Ebola virus. It was shown yesterday on NDTV news…. Pls forward this msg urgently to people you care… Take care
This messages has been circulating social media in years 2011, 2013 and 2017.
As per the posts in Facebook, no one should drink products by name of ‘Cool Drink’. It is being said that some worker from this product has infected it with Ebola. Since the employee was infected so he has put his blood in pre-packaged product. It is said that this message was issued by Manila police and all the TV news channels were covering it. It also says to forward this message to maximum people.
Our conclusion – If we study the Ebola virus, then we will come to know that the Ebola can be transmitted through contact with infected blood, semen or vaginal fluids. So this message is complete nonsense and nothing else. None of the news sources can be validated. No information is given by Manila Police as well.
So, this rumour is highly illogical and baseless. It’s just created to confuse people and get page hits.
There are several other versions of this message, just to confuse people.
