About the other three contributions, Arjun said: “GiveIndia is working non-stop to help provide cash in the hands of daily wage earners who have lost their jobs/have no source of income due to the lockdown.

“The Wishing Factory is doing remarkable work with thalassemia patients from low-income groups so that they receive blood transfusions during the lockdown, especially since blood transfusions are not included under essential services.”

Arjun also urged others to come forward and support as many people as possible. “We can only fight COVID-19 if we stand united. I urge all of you to come forward and support to the best of your abilities.”

Those who believed the statements to be true were half as likely to be vaccinated, the study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, indicated.
