Beware of "Machupo Virus in the P / 500 Paracetamol" Hoax

The hoax below, which claims that the paracetamol with the name "P / 500" contains the "Machupo" virus, was created by pranksters to create public panic. If the claims in the message were true, then there would have been a recent spike in reported cases of people getting infected. But, we could find any information about any reported human cases.

Remember, not everything posted on the Internet is true, which is why it is always important to get news from credible sources. And, such frighten message posted online should be verified before being shared with family and friends, to help prevent mass panic.

The "Machupo Virus in the P / 500 Paracetamol" Hoax


Be careful not to take the paracetamol that comes written P / 500. It is a new, very white and shiny paracetamol, doctors prove to contain Machupo virus, considered one of the most dangerous viruses in the world. And with high mortality rate. Please share this message, for all people and family. And save life from them ….. I’ve done my part, now it’s your turn … remember that God helps those who help.

There are no credible news or health authority reports about such a paracetamol contamination. Nor, have there been any official recalls of the supposedly contaminated medication. And, if the dangerous contamination described in the message was really taking place, there would be widespread news and media coverage of the incident along with official health warnings to consumers.
