As people wait with bated breath for a vaccine against COVID-19, a Congress councillor in Karnataka has recommended Old Monk and half-fried eggs to beat the virus.
Congress councillor from Ullal town near Mangaluru Ravichandra Gatti said that he has tried many medicines for COVID-19 but vouched that only rum and eggs worked.
"Add a teaspoonful of ground pepper in 90ml rum and stir it well with your finger and drink it. Eat two half-fried omelettes to ensure that the coronavirus vanishes," he said. The video has gone viral on social media.
"I am not suggesting this as a politician, but as a member of the corona committee," he said.
Meanwhile, Twitter had some hilarious reactions to the councillor's recommendation.
"This, friends, is the remedy we need and deserve," a Twitter user wrote. "Everybody is an expert. But this man is in a different league," said another Twitter user.
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) took a jibe at the Congress party and wrote, "Reason why Congress sell its elected representatives to BJP."
