‘COVID retreated because of Jesus, Christianity responsible for India’s development’: Telangana Health Director G Srinivas Rao

Srinivas said the reason COVID-19 subsided in India was because of the benevolence of Jesus Christ. He made the remarks while participating in the Semi-Christmas celebrations held in the Bhadradri Kothagudem district.

Telangana Health Director Srinivas on Wednesday attributed the reduction in coronavirus cases in the country to Jesus Christ. He also hailed Christianity for teaching mankind the art of survival.

The comments came at a time when China is in the midst of an unprecedented coronavirus wave, with hospitals overwhelmed with patients and medical staff stretched thin.

Srinivas said the reason COVID-19 subsided in India was because of the benevolence of Jesus Christ. He made the remarks while participating in the Semi-Christmas celebrations held in the Bhadradri Kothagudem district.

“Christianity is the reason for India’s development. It is because of the grace of Jesus Christ that Covid has decreased. Many people think that it has decreased because we are doing good, but that is not the reality. The cases have reduced because of Jesus Christ,” said Srinivas as per a report published on TV9 Telugu.

He reportedly added, “The existence of humankind is in danger. There are many gods but Jesus is the only one who walked on earth.” Srinivas said that the ancestors saw all this and they said it to future generations. He further exhorted people to carry the message of Jesus Christ and convey it to future generations, regardless of caste and religion.

Contrary to Telangana Health Director’s evangelical proclamations, India managed to blunt the deadly wave of coronavirus because of several factors, including its strategy to impose stringent lockdown that helped in reducing community infection, manufacturing of efficacious vaccines, and smooth implementation of the inoculation programme.

India began its vaccination programme on 16 January 2021 and as of 2 December 2022, India has jabbed ver 2.19 billion doses overall, including first, second and precautionary (booster) doses of the currently approved vaccines. In India, 95% of the eligible population has received at least one shot, and 88% of the eligible population is fully vaccinated.
