For God’s Sake
As if a sea of maskless crowds jostling for divine providence at the Haridwar Kumbh, tempting the fury of both fate and COVID-19 wasn’t triggering enough, our elected representatives continue to spout dubious assertions, tragically illustrative of India’s COVID-19 management policy. Instead of aiming for damage control or scientific temper, UP BJP leader Sunil Bharala appeared on TV to proudly proclaim that (a) he was COVIDpositive; (b) he attended the Kumbh and (c) superspreader events must be held as “faith is above COVID protocols”.
Faith is a powerful thing, providing both strength and solace to believers but as our young and old gasp for breath, maybe it’s for the best if the honourable MLA saves his. Source: NDTV
