FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Indian government promotes miracle cures for Covid-19” – below is their description.

With the onset of the #Covid-19 #pandemic, alternative #remedies and miracle cures have been flooding TV and social media in #India. One of their strongest promoters is none other than the Indian Hindu nationalist government of PM Narendra Modi, determined to promote traditional therapies such as #Ayurveda. As a result, many medicines are sold without any scientific basis and the Indian Medical Association is increasingly concerned at the risk of citizens being duped. Our correspondents report.
