Bhopal: From papads as immunity booster to injecting disinfectant, politicians come up with their own version of Covid-19 cures, albeit without any scientific basis. The latest to join the list is Madhya Pradesh minister Imarti Devi, who recently said in Gwalior that she cannot be infected with deadly Covid-19 because she was born in gobar (cow dung) and mitti (mud).
In a viral clip, Devi can be seen telling journalists in Gwalior how wrongly it was reported by the media that she had tested positive for Covid-19.
“You say that I got (affected) with Corona. I was born in soil and cow dung. There are so many germs there that corona will not come anywhere near me. I’ve wore this mask forcibly.”
The video of the bizarre claim has gone viral on several social media platforms.
