New Delhi (Vishvas News). In a viral video, a man can be seen claiming that snorting dry ginger powder can prevent you from Covid 19. The post is also claiming that the man in the video is Dr Sushil Razdan. Vishvas News investigated the post and found it to be false. The person seen in the video is not Dr. Sushil Razdan and the method of treatment of corona virus described in the video is wrong. According to medical experts, snorting dry ginger powder can be harmful.

What’s in the viral post?

Social media user ‘Sofi Zahoor‘ shared this video and referred to it as a way to prevent the new variant Omicron of corona virus. The user also claimed that the man in the video is Dr. Sushil Razdan.

Several other users on social media have also shared this video with similar claims.

Investigation

The viral post is claiming that the man in the video is Dr Sushil Razdan.

To start our investigation, we searched with keywords ‘Dr Sushil Razda’, we found many videos on social media, in which Dr. Sushil Razdan is interviewed (audio and video) where he clarified that the video going viral in his name is fake. He confirmed that he is not the man in the video.

We found an interview of Dr. Sushil Razdan by Facebook user ‘RJ NASIR‘ on his Facebook page where Dr Razdan can be clearly heard saying that the video going viral in his name is fake. In the interview, he said, ‘There is no need to pay attention to the words of the person seen in the viral video. That’s not me.’

Another Facebook user ‘Badal Jana‘ has also shared the audio interview of Dr. Razdan on his timeline. In this interview, Dr. Razdan said, ‘I have nothing to do with the person seen in the video.’

Dr. Sushil Razdan is a Neurologist working in Medanta Medicity Hospital, Gurugram. In the collage below, it can be clearly seen that the person seen in the video is not Dr. Razdan.

It is clear from our investigation so far that the man in the video isn’t famous neurologist Dr. Sushil Razdan. The person seen in the video is someone else.

After this, we investigated the claim made in the video regarding snorting dry ginger powder to prevent Covid 19.. Vishvas News contacted Dr. Gautam Sharma, who works in RML, regarding this. He said, “Omicron, a new variant of the coronavirus, is spreading rapidly and if a person has symptoms of its infection, then they should immediately get tested and contact a doctor. Patients should follow the treatment procedure as prescribed by the doctors and treating themselves by watching such viral and misleading videos can be dangerous for their health. The method of treatment described in the video is completely wrong. The vaccine is the way of protection against the virus and those who have not taken both doses should try to get it as soon as possible.”

Conclusion: Vishvas News investigated the post and found it to be false. The person seen in the video is not Dr. Sushil Razdan and the method of treatment of coronavirus described in the video is wrong. According to medical experts, snorting dry ginger powder can be harmful.
