P hasn’t been able to walk properly and has suffered from tremors for over 12 years. He is shown getting a shot, and seconds later, he’s seen doing push-ups. Mumbai-based Nanavati Hospital’s video on its antidote to Parkinson’s Disease, uploaded earlier this month, seems too good to be true. In fact, neurologists all over the country say it’s barely true.
“The drug’s effect lasts only for one hour. The video doesn’t mention that,” says Dr Charulata Sankhla, President, Movement Disorders Society of India, Mumbai.
Having said that, the video has achieved “viral” status.
