Politician Who Said Bathing In Mud Protects Against Covid-19 Tests Positive

Politician Who Said Bathing In Mud Protects Against Covid-19 Tests Positive

A politician who filmed himself sitting in a mud puddle blowing a horn claiming it would protect from Covid-19 has tested positive for the virus.

Unsurprisingly, Sukhbir Singh Jaunapuria's method of protection appears to have been unsuccessful, and he was one of 24 Indian MPs who have contracted the coronavirus, as reported by local media.

A month before he was diagnosed, he posted a strange video on his Facebook page. He could be 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, work on the farm, blow a conch... and eat 'desi' things. One gains immunity from doing these things."

Desi is a term that describes local and indigenous things.

The country has surpassed five million confirmed cases of the disease, with 97,894 being added on Wednesday - the biggest rise in one day yet.

Jaunapuria isn't the only denier to find out that coronavirus is very much real.

The unnamed person is thought to have believed the virus that has killed thousands worldwide isn't real.

Some people have been having parties at which a person who believes they have the virus and several others meet up in order to test whether the virus 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.

The patient ended up severely ill, and sadly died in hospital after contracting the deadly virus.

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'."
