The video of a faith healer, insufflating patients inside the Covid-19 high dependency ward of Lady Reading Hospital (LRH) in Peshawar made rounds on social media, causing uproar in the general public Saturday.
In the video the well-known faith healer from Badhaber village of Peshawar could be seen, with his armed guard and retinue, walking from one bed to other and insufflate each patient in order to cure him. This activity took place in the presence of hospital staff and doctors but no one tried to interrupt him.
It is worth mentioning here that no one other than the staff and doctors are allowed to enter the Covid-19 wards at LRH and even media is banned there. Still the faith healer, along with his armed guard, managed to enter the ward when invited by the relatives of a patient.
He could be seen touching the patients and talking to them. The faith healer claims to have the ability to cure Covid19 through exorcism.
