Modi govt request to test Ganges for virus cure declined

India’s top medical research body has turned down a proposal by the Modi government to test water from the Ganges river as a cure for coronavirus. Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) turned down the request as it is focusing on the Covid-19 battle and does not want to waste time on other research.  ICMR’s head of the Department of Research Management, said that the matter is at a very preliminary stage.
