Random thoughts on life in Liuzhou, Guangxi, China


This sign has just appeared very near my home.

It is an advertisement for a leech shop. Not a medically qualified clinic or anything. Just a leech cure quackery.

The “medicinal” use of leeches, which usually did more harm than good, all but died out in the west in the 19th century. It was revived in the 1980s on a very limited basis for a few highly specialised applications. Here they are offering it as panacea.

China’s health care practice and legislation is an unhealthy mess.

Still, it doesn’t compare to this lunacy.

Just keep saying that ‘I’ll never have the flu. I’ll never have the flu. Inoculate yourself with the word of God. Flu, I bind you off the people in the name of Jesus. Jesus himself gave us the flu shot. He redeemed us from the curse of flu.

Gloria Copeland, Adviser to the so-called President of the USA
