Thousands bathe in Ganges river amid Kumbh Mela fest despite pandemic
Two million Hinduists have crowded the banks of India's Ganges river as they gathered for the Kumbh Mela festival celebrations, amid a surge in COVID cases in the country.
Covid would be the last thing id be worried about catching, swimming in that river...
people bathing and drinking in the same river where they threw dead bodies and poop in I guess that's how Indian is built differently and has better immune sy em
India is a 365 day vacation.
@todian gaming Yep... very dirty, full of human feces, dead bodies, and so on..
It’s nice to see such an old tradition being kept alive but I think they should really start looking after their sacred river. It’s become an open sewer in parts and is critically endangered now because of it. You have to respect your home and surroundings. And, most importantly, yourself.
Enjoy your sewage water ,No deodrant and swimming in filth excellent
This is hilly area water is clean there river directly follow through himyan.
@todian gaming this section of the river is one of the most polluted rivers in the world.
Nice to be alive and enjoying nature!
Aye...perhaps the botchy water warshes off the invisible bugs.
This sacred river has strange auto-cleaning powers despite being tragically heavily polluted.
Blessings brothers and sisters!!! From Scotland!
Bathing in the Ganges is a pandemic in itself
R R R
Imagine the bacterial filth in that river.
One of the most beautiful rivers on earth is turned in to a dustbin.
They must have the strongest immune sy em in the world.
Only the ones that will survive
They have more chances of dying in the polluted waters of the Ganges ,than dying from covid!
Lets drink from the Ganges everyone!!
If you're bathing in the Ganges you have no Sars-Cov-2 problem.
They don't mind the human feces, they've been doing this for over 60 years.
Guinness record fact that Ganges is most polluted river in the world.
They are healthier and live long lives. LIVE
Ugh! You couldn't pay me enough to bathe in that poo-laden river.
Covid didn't survived in that river
And how many people died after that ?
I bet 0
And they wonder why Covid is spreading like wildfire in India?
Endiotloser sl ve

A whole other world.
