    And for this misery, the villagers, who do not know much about the coronavirus or its spread, have one culprit to blame — a 5G mobile tower. A prayer meeting for the dead in every second house is now a regular site in the village that has officially recorded only eight deaths due to Covid Rani, whose husband died of high fever, has another theory. She believes heavy winds are carrying the virus from the tower to households.

    All of us started feeling uneasy in the chest. It is because the wind carried the virus from the tower. Titoli villager in Rohtak district has seen 60 deaths in the past 40 days. That day, no death was reported in the village. In the United Kingdom last year, telecom masts that enable the next generation of wireless communication were set on fire by people motivated by a theory that the tech helps spread the coronavirus.

    The conspiracy was shared widely on social media and many mast fires were reported in Belfast, Liverpool and Birmingham.

    The situation is now under control as we have sent teams to make the villagers understand that there is no connection between spread of Covid, related deaths and these towers.

    A senior police officer said that such rumours were being spread by people, who, until last year, were protesting against the three farm reforms brought in by the Centre last September.

    Towers had been damaged by people protesting against industrialist Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani who claimed the two businessmen were benefitting from the agri reforms. Last year in November-December, we registered several cases against these people who encouraged locals to damage these towers in support of the farmers.

    This time too, it is the same set of people spreading these rumours. On paper, the centre looks promising — it has beds, mattresses and residents even had the authorities send two oxygen concentrators, two cylinders and some medicines.

    There are only two small cylinders for oxygen, which no one knows how to operate. No one cares about us. Also, there is no provision for admission of patients, or sufficient medicine stock. Bubbly, who is part of the staff at the healthcare center, told ThePrint that they had to arrange medication for suspected Covid cases on their own.

    Not many people have come here for isolation because we do not have any staff to look after them. The ones who came with symptoms were turned away because we do not have any medicines to give them. The reason: They tested negative for Covid Of these, only five tested positive.

    I agreed and took him for a test, but what happened? His father had tested negative. Bubbly said testing in the village has been very low, but is picking up. However, most of the tests being conducted are rapid antigen tests, which are known for throwing up false negatives. RT-PCR is considered the gold standard for Covid testing but requires access to a lab to process test samples. So many of these cases have happened and that is why people are not trusting these tests.

    We will send more teams once that happens. With three people in the village dying after having taken the vaccination, some have started to believe vaccinations are causing deaths.

    So far, the village has vaccinated people, all above the age of 45 years. Asha workers vaccinating people have a list of residents, who are called to the center to be vaccinated. A health worker at the center told ThePrint that despite the reluctance, there has been an increase people coming for vaccinations. Who would invite death? Another resident, year-old Om Bir, dismissed such misgivings. Yes, there have been deaths after vaccination, but not many. They may be dying because of some complication due to that.

    They are putting injections just to record numbers.
