In India, a doctor took a coronavirus test from a woman using a vaginal swab. The incident raised serious questions from law enforcement agencies.
According to IBT, the woman passed the test, but suspected something was wrong. She turned to other doctors who dispelled her doubts: such a COVID testing method simply does not exist.
The only exception is the Chinese, who reportedly take anal swabs from American diplomats.
In India, the woman was told, swabs are taken exclusively from the mouth or nose.
As a result, the police became interested in the activities of the doctor. He was detained, he can answer under the article for rape.
In February 2021, some representatives of the US diplomatic mission in China complained that they were being forced to take anal swabs for COVID-19. The State Department said they would study the issue and make a decision. However, the Chinese side denied taking anal swabs for coronavirus from American diplomats.
The humiliating procedure was also criticized by the Japanese government, which said the swabs caused mental anguish to Japanese citizens visiting China.
