High-profile Sri Lankan shaman Dies of Covid-19, Tried to end a Pandemic with “Blessed” Water Treatment

Colombo: A high-profile shaman Eliyantha White, 48, who tried to end Sri Lanka’s COVID-19 outbreak with “blessed” water has died of the virus, his family said Thursday.

Eliyantha White treated sports stars and top politicians including the country’s prime minister, who claimed in November he could end the Covid-19 pandemic in Sri Lanka and neighboring India by pouring pots of his “blessed” water into rivers.

Sri Lankan Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi endorsed the water treatment, but was infected two months later and ended up in a hospital intensive care unit. She was later demoted and lost her portfolio.

According to sources, Eliyantha White treated Sachin Tendulkar’s knee injury. He has since treated other Indian cricket stars, including Gautam Gambhir and Ashish Nehra.

White’s family said Eliyantha White had refused the Covid-19 vaccine.

His body was cremated at Colombo’s main cemetery on Thursday in line with quarantine regulations.

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, who was among politicians to have consulted White, said on Twitter: “I’m deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Dr. Eliyantha White. My deepest condolences to his friends and family during this difficult time. His legacy will continue to live through all the lives, he touched and healed of various ailments.”

However, mainstream doctors described Eliyantha White as a fraud, and Ayurveda physicians rejected his claims.
