Social media was flooded with pictures and videos of long, serpentine queues outside liquor shops in various parts of the national capital after the government announced the week-long lockdown to curb the surge in Covid-19 cases.
Standing in a queue, among others, was a woman, in front of a liquor shop in Shivpuri Geeta Colony in the national capital who claimed that she preferred alcohol over Covid-19 vaccines.
“Injection will not work for Covid-19 but alcohol would. I have been consuming alcohol for 35 years. I have never gone to see the doctor. A peg works as a medicine for me,” the woman told news agency ANI, adding that she would not be taking the vaccine but will take “one peg per day”.
The video of the interview soon went viral and many took to Twitter, sharing memes and jokes about it. Take a look at some of the reactions to it:
