Hundreds of Hindu believers threw a party on March 14 at which they drank cow urine in the hope that it would protect them from the coronavirus.
Vaccines against the virus, spreading around the world and already infected more than 140,000 people, do not yet exist, and more than 5,000 people have died. But a group called Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (All India Hindu Union) held a party on Saturday in Delhi, the capital of the country, where they drank urine in the hope of protecting themselves from the virus.
The event was attended by about 200 people, and the organizers are going to hold similar meetings in other areas of India, where 84 cases of the disease were recorded, as a result of which two people died.
One of the men presents said that he had been drinking cow urine for 21 years, taking a bath with cow dung, and had never been sick.
