People in India are using many local medicines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some, like Ram Mangal Das, a cow shelter owner in Delhi, and G. D. Singla, a chartered accountant, believe cow excrement is part of Ayurveda, a traditional Indian system of medicine that can help prevent COVID-19 infections. However, experts say there is no evidence it can prevent COVID-19. Dr. Harjit Singh Bhatti, a doctor at All India Institute of Medical Science, claims the government promoted the practice to keep people trapped in superstition so that they don't demand medicine or vaccine.
