Baba Ramdev in hospital? Yes, but that image is from 2011
New Delhi, Mar 23: There is a photograph of Baba Ramdev which is being circulated widely on the social media.
The photo shows a weak Baba Ramdev surrounded by hospital staff including doctors. The social media users claimed that he had drank cow urine in excess to avoid coronavirus. As a result of this his condition worsened.
Now this is a misrepresented photograph of Baba Ramdev. This photo was in fact taken in 2011 and appeared in an India Today article. This was the time when he had broken a fast of nine days. Ramdev was fasting against black money. The image was shot on June 12 2011 at a Dehradun Hospital.
