And the Engineering authority of the armed forces held today its international news conference to declare the results of its breakthrough medical inventions to diagnose and treat HCV and HIV commonly known as The Koftagate in Egypt and abroad.
Several months ago the army announced that HCV and HIV treatment would be available next 30 June 2014.
Despite it is not the 30th yet , the army has declared the following : Despite the results of the Complete cure device "CCD" are allegedly 100% positive as tested on 80 patients "HCV and HIV" , the treatment will not be applied for another 6 months because it needs more clinical tests.

There were another interesting announcements about the CCD as it turns out that it does not treat Liver fibrosis and that it did not cure either the late stage HCV patients. The army also screened a documentary about the Engineering authority and its history with the different authorities and agencies working under the umbrella of the armed forces like the Nuclear supervision authority.
Despite initially announcing that the CCD is a top national security secret that won't be shared with anyone , there was a brief description about how the device it works.
From what I understand very few journalists were invited to attend the press conference mostly from military correspondents.
Mada Misr founder and journalist Lina Attallah attended it too and she tweeted couple of details like how the fact that the ancient Egyptians were pioneers in medicine was a proof that the Egyptian army was capable to invent devices like C-Fast and C-Cure Device. Blogger and Dr. Mostafa Hussein attended it as a doctor. Here is a quick summary for Dr. Hussein saw at the presser earlier Today in Arabic.
Journalists Lamiaa Hassan from Ahram Online and Mohamed Yahia ,the editor of Nature Middle East magazine failed to attend the conference.
Amazingly the absence of Assigned Major General Abdel Atti aka Dr.Strangelove was noticeable ,

Interestingly the ministry of health in Egypt announced from several months ago that it succeeded in reaching a 99% price cut for the new HCV treatment “Sovaldi” after negotiations with Gilead Pharmaceutical .It is worth to mention that the man behind “Sovaldi” is an Italian Jewish scientist from Egyptian origin , Dr. Remon Shinari.
One must wonder why the government would have such negotiations in the first place when the army is insisting that it found a cure not only HCV but HIV as well and bunch of other deadly diseases like cancer !! This is another mystery in the whole affair.
Needless to say one of the theories we got in Egypt is that the “C-Cure” device will be actually doses of “Sovaldi” behind closed doors !!
This theory now can be proven right because according to Dr.Madiha El-Khatab , the member of the team behind the CCD the patient will take pills "she didnot say which pills" in his treatment course besides the sessions of CCD
Ironically through the past week another scenario spread by some Pro-army supporters online that the Egyptian intelligence managed to steal the patents of HCV treatment from one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the States and brought it back home to treat the patients !! Those supporters do not know the legal implications of such claim unfortunately.
To be honest the whole affair is too expressive as I see it ,I mean you got military arrogance , charlatans, hypocrites , ignorance and chauvinism in one shot !!!
I do not need to say no one insults and defames the Egyptian armed forces except those who are insisting to put on that show harming the feelings of thousands of patients who had very high hopes to be cured by the army for free !!!
