The second wave of the pandemic seems to have even emboldened individuals, who have previously been called out on account of their tall claims, on miracle cures. This month, Baba Ramdev, the brain behind the retail giant Patanjali, which had introduced Coronil, a ‘cure’ for COVID during the first wave of the coronavirus crisis, found himself stepping out of line when he mocked those affected by COVID. He said that they just did not know how to breathe properly and were spreading negativity with their complaints of oxygen shortage. The yoga guru had previously supplemented his statements with a claim that the application of mustard oil through the nostrils would also help beat COVID. Subsequently, the vice-president of the Indian Medical Association filed a complaint against Ramdev for his insensitive comments that have come at a time when it was reported that over 900 doctors have lost their lives serving as frontline workers during the pandemic.
