“The president said this remedy cures and we trust him so we drink it,” one woman who received her dose told the media.
“When I discovered this drink, I hesitated as a parent. I said to myself: ‘How come the sick people don’t drink it, and why do we make students drink it?’ I hesitated a lot,” another citizen quizzed.
