NEW DELHI: A British charity worker who survived the coronavirus, dengue and malaria was recovering after being bitten by a potentially deadly snake in the western Indian state of Rajasthan.
Ian Jones was bitten by an Indian cobra in the rural Jodhpur rural district of the state and was hospitalized in the city of Jodhpur, about 350 kilometers (220 miles) from the regional capital Jaipur.
“Jones came to us last week after being bitten by a snake in a village in the region. It was initially suspected that he was also positive on Covid-19 (for the second time) but he came out negative about it,” said Dr. Abhishek Tater, who treated him at the local Medipulse Hospital, he told AFP on Saturday.
“While with us, he was conscious and had snake bite symptoms including blurred vision and difficulty walking, but these are usually transient symptoms,” Tater added.
Jones was fired earlier this week. “We think there will be no long-term effect. If he has not already improved, he would do it within the next few days,” the doctor added.
He said snake bites were not uncommon in rural parts of the region.
“The father is a fighter, by the time he got to India he had already suffered from malaria and dengue fever before Covid-19,” his son Seb Jones said in a statement on a GoFundMe page set up to help paying his medical bills travel back to the Isle of Wight in southern England.
“He had not been able to travel home due to the pandemic and as a family we understood his desire to continue to support the many people who relied on him,” he added.
Jones works with traditional craftsmen in Rajasthan and through his charity-backed social enterprise, Sabirian, helps import their wares into Britain to help them escape poverty.
