BJP MP prescribes cow urine to prevent COVID, experts reject ‘unscientific’ remark

New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) parliamentarian Pragya Thakur has said that drinking cow urine can help prevent coronavirus disease, adding that her remark had “scientific backing”.

On Sunday, while addressing party workers in Bhopal, Thakur said: “I consumed cow urine daily and it is a kind of acid which purifies my body. It also purifies the lungs and saves me from COVID infection. I don’t take any medicine against corona but I am safe.”

The 51-year-old MP received criticism after a video of her remark went viral. She, however, defended the statement.
