Who Won the Week (23 May 2021)

Prompt image for the Fandango's Who Won The Week prompt

In response to Fandango’s Who Won the Week post, I have been looking at my own newsfeeds.


I did a very long post last time, so I’ll make up for it this week.

  • You know cows are sacred in the Hindu religion?
  • You know that there are many Hindus in India?
  • You know that India has COVID bad at the moment? Official figures are more than 20 million cases and 250,000 deaths. And, “official figures” are speculated in some quarters to be only 10% of the actual numbers.

So, put these three things together. What do you have?

Doctors in Gujarat are warning people against smearing cow shit over themselves. Not only does it not ward off COVID, but it risks spreading a whole host of other nasties.
