Scientists around the world have been struggling to contain the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus for almost two years, but an Indian numerologist believes that the only way we can cure the world of this pandemic is with the help of poor spelling.
SV Annandd Rao, a stenographer and numerology hobbyist from Ananthapuram in the Indian state of Andrash Pradesh, believes that the wrong spelling of “covid” and “corona” can cure not only his home district but the entire world of the coronavirus. Apparently the numbers that correspond to the letters in the current spelling of these words add up to a very dangerous number that will bring the world to its knees. But if we could change this terrible number into something useful by just adding a few letters, everything would be fine …
“The existing name ‘Corona’ adds up to a dangerous number and causes unimaginable devastation for the whole world,” Annandd told Times of India. “When we fill the spelling with divine power, an aura arises that leads to the complete disappearance of the virus. Similar benefits can be obtained by changing the spelling from Covid-19 to ‘Covviyd-19’. “
Rao, who practices numerology as a hobby and added an extra ‘n’ and ‘d’ to his name to be lucky, put up a banner asking the public to use the changed spelling to tell the world about the World rid of pandemic.
“If you use the changed spelling of CARONAA and COVVIYD-19, either by posting them on the door or in public places, or by binding the banner in all public places, CARONAA will not only disappear from Ananthapuram dist. but also from the world ”, it says on the banner. “This is a guarantee as it is divine power according to NUMEROLOGY.”
As you can imagine, Mr. Rao’s proposal was received with raised eyebrows and a big smile, with some suggesting that his method should be used to get rid of corrupt politicians.
“Let’s change the spelling of all politicians and see if it brings luck to our country,” commented one person.
“You can find comedy anywhere these days,” wrote someone else on Twitter.
Annandd Rao’s solution may not be as effective as he claims, but it’s better to sell bleach to desperate and gullible people as a cure for Covid-19.
