The Tea Has Infection

A Hangzhou (in China) reporter used tea as his urine sample and asked 10 hospitals to analyze it. Six of the hospitals determined that he had an infection, and four of them prescribed medicine worth about 1,300 yuan in total. The Sanjia Hospital later determined that 90% of the tests on tea should be false positive and this supposedly showed that the problem was not with the hospitals. Ministry of Health spokesperson Mao Junan criticized the media for violation of the journalistic professional code of conduct.

That's funny ...... hehehe. I wonder what will Malaysian hospitals do. Could be even worse.

it shows how much those hospitals wanted to profit even from an unknown liquid (which so happened to be tea in this case).
