The 105-year-old Kamalamma Linganagouda Hiregoudra has become the centre of attraction in Karnataka’s Koppal district after her grandson reportedly cured her of Covid-19 with his Ayurvedic formulas.
Koppal is one of the backward districts of the state and has been a hotspot for coronavirus.
Hiregoudra’s grandson Srinivas Hyati is an Ayurvedic doctor practising in the state.
As the elderly woman had a fever, she had undergone a corona test which came positive but she was reluctant to be hospitalised.
“It was a challenge to treat her at home. However, she had no other health issues and that was a great advantage for us to treat her like any other Covid-19 patient. She was not worried about the virus and cooperated for the treatment in home isolation,” Hyati said.
