Several months into the pandemic and millions of lives lost, there are still many people out there who think this virus is a joke or a hoax. This politician a month back was seen sitting in the mud telling people that there is no such thing as a virus and as long as you eat healthy food you will be fine. The man has now tested positive for the virus.
This Indian politician was filmed sitting in the dog’s shit blowing a horn and claiming that it would protect him from the COVID-19 pandemic has tested positive for the virus.
Not so surprisingly, Sukhbir Singh Jaunapuria’s idea of protection from the virus backfired and he was one of 24 Indian MPs who have contracted the coronavirus, as reported by the media.
A month back, this man posted a video on his Facebook page,
He was seen sitting in a muddy field, blowing into a conch shell.
Speaking in Hindi, he said: “Go out, get wet in the rain, sit in the dirt which includes dog’s stool, work on the farm, blow a conch… and eat ‘desi’ things. One gains immunity from doing these things.”
India has surpassed five million confirmed cases of the disease, with 97,894 being added on Wednesday – the biggest rise in one day yet.
Unfortunately, this politician isn’t the only denier of this virus’s existence.
A 30-year-old coronavirus hoax conspiracy theorist died from Covid-19 at a hospital in Texas after attending a so-called ‘COVID Party’, according to healthcare officials.Many people around the world still think that this pandemic is a hoax and have been attending public gatherings like normal.
In fact, there are many people who have been attending parties of people who have tested positive for the virus just to check if the news is real or not.
Dr. Jane Appleby, the Chief Medical Officer of Methodist Healthcare, confirmed the idea is for those in doubt to double-check whether the virus really exists.
Appleby explained: “This is a party held by somebody diagnosed by the Covid virus and the thought is to see if the virus is real and to see if anyone gets infected.”
She then added that the patient’s condition deteriorated until they were critically ill before they came out with a heartbreaking statement in the moments before their death.
Appleby explained: “Just before the patient died, they looked at their nurse and said ‘I think I made a mistake, I thought this was a hoax, but it’s not’.”
