- Doctors in India are reminding the public that cow dung is not a cure for Covid-19.
- Apparently, some Hindu believers have covered their bodies in cow dung and have drank cow urine in an attempt to boost their immune system against the virus.
- “There is no concrete scientific evidence that cow dung or urine work to boost immunity against COVID-19,” they said.
With India’s worsening Covid situation, doctors are now taking it upon themselves to warn the general public: cow dung is not a cure for the dreaded virus.
Medical experts had to remind people after it has been reported that some “believers” in Gujarat, India have been covering themselves in cow dung and urine. The purpose, according to them, is to boost their immunity and protect them against the coronavirus.
Hinduism beliefs tell us that the cow is a symbol of life, and so believers consider them sacred.
In some instances, Hindus have even used cow dung for prayer rituals and for cleansing their homes. Now they believe it can protect them from Covid or help them recover from the disease.
A pharmaceuticals company associate manager Gautam Manilal Borisa shared:
“We see … even doctors come here. Their belief is that this therapy improves their immunity and they can go and tend to patients with no fear.”
According to Borisa, the practice has sped up his Covid-19 recovery last year when he got infected. He regularly visited the Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul Vishwavidya Pratishthanam school to bathe in cow dung and urine.
Doctors and scientists, however, are clarifying that the practice can cause serious health problems.
As Indian Medical Association national president Dr JA Jayalal pointed out:
“There is no concrete scientific evidence that cow dung or urine work to boost immunity against COVID-19, it is based entirely on belief. There are also health risks involved in smearing or consuming these products – other diseases can spread from the animal to humans.”
As of this writing, India has reported a total of 23,340,938 confirmed Covid cases with 254,225 deaths and 19,382,642 recoveries.
