From injecting disinfectant, drinking alcohol and detergent, politicians of all hues have come up with their own version of Covid-19 “cures”, without any scientific basis.
The latest to join the list is Indian minister Imarti Devi, who recently said that she cannot be infected with Covid-19 because she was born in cow dung and mud, reported by Oriental Daily.
And of course, her bizarre claim went viral on several media platforms.
In a viral clip, Devi can be seen telling reporters how wrongly it was reported by the media that she had tested positive for Covid-19.
“Only you were there and you said that I have coronavirus. I was born in mud and cow dung. There are so many germs there that coronavirus will not come anywhere near me, ” she said.
She also added she was forced to wear a face mask.
