228. To hell with this Corona | The mask slips for India's COVID-19 seceptics

Read it here https://bit.ly/2TvXNhT

Amar Singh Azad, a 71-year-old doctor in north India, has not worn a face mask since March, when a surge in coronavirus cases led to a national lockdown.

While the World Health Organization (WHO) now recommends the use of masks in public as a measure to curb the spread of Covid-19, Azad is doubtful this will have any effect.

India has recorded some 7.6 million infections – making it the world’s second-worst hit nation behind the United States – but, also, high recovery rates.

The doctor specialised in community medicine and studies epidemics in Patiala, Punjab, treating about 70 clients daily. He now practices chiefly naturopathy and believes the pandemic will run its natural course like any other virus; that we should rely on immunity to beat it.
