Guwahati: Globally acclaimed Indian medical nutritionist having a doctorate in diabetes from the Alliance International University, Zambia, Dr Biswaroop Roy Chowdhury, claimed that the pandemic coronavirus will not kill more than 6.5 lakh people in India.
“Coronavirus is seasonal influenza or common cold that comes every year in different names and symptoms like the H1N1, Chikungunya or Dengue fever. Medical history says every year more than 5 to 6.5 lakh people in India die of such seasonal influenza or cold. This year too, not more than 6.5 lakh people will die of the Covid-19, the muted form of an old virus,” Dr Choudhury argued.
The nutritionist alleged that people are frightened and terrorised in the name of coronavirus. “Earlier, when the viruses like H1N1, Dengue and Chikungunya erupted in India, the administration never imposed social distance, containment zones and lockdown. This year, the management of the coronavirus pandemic has become a business. We must remember another virus will erupt next year with a different name.” he said.
Dr Choudhury alleged that certain forces have been obstructing the experts from exposing the truth on coronavirus. “Those who said to have died of Covid-19 were diagnosed with anti-malaria, anti-HIV and antibiotic drugs. It has now officially been proved that using those drugs itself were the reasons behind the death of those patients. Even the WHO is quite aware of this report. That is why these drugs were recently banned from diagnosing the corona patients,” he stressed.
Referring the findings of the World Health Organisation’s research conducted in October, 2019, Dr Choudhury said, “In that research, it was found, imposition of lockdown and social distance cannot stop people from dying during a pandemic.”
He also appealed the people of India to take citrus fruits like mosambi, pineapple, mangoes, tomatoes, mangoes, pea etc to get vitamin c besides inhaling fresh air and sun light.
Stating that poor people have a stronger immune system, for they are exposed to sunlight and fresh air, the health expert said, “There is no point of fear. Taking fruits is the best way to prevent coronavirus infection. However, if you cannot afford to buy fruits, consume four tomatoes a day. It will give .2gm vitamin c that is good enough to boost your immune system to fight against the coronavirus.”
Dr Chowdhury is also an honorary Research Adviser at Sant Hirdaram Medical College, Bhopal. He has authored more than 25 books in medical science.
