Patanjali sends papers on Coronil clinical trial to Ayush ministry
Patanjali Ayurved has sent its documents on the clinical trial of Coronil coronavirus medicine to the Ayush ministry. Patanjali Research Foundation Trust sent the documents to Ayush ministry in response to their queries raised on the recent clinical trial of Coronil that yoga guru Baba Ramdev claimed were 100% successful in curing coronavirus patients.
The AYUSH ministry on Tuesday asked Ramdev's Patanjali Ayurved to provide "at the earliest" details of composition and research undertaken prior to the launch of the medicines it claimed are for the treatment of COVID-19, and advised Patanjali to stop advertising them until the "issue" is examined.
Ramdev's herbal medicine company Patanjali Ayurved has launched 'Coronil tablet and Swasari vati' medicines claiming they can cure the highly contagious disease COVID-19 within seven days. Patanjali has also claimed that the two Ayurveda-based medicines have shown 100 per cent favourable results during clinical trials on COVID-19 infected patients except those on a life support system. However, the AYUSH ministry said that the facts of the claim and details of the stated scientific study are not known to it.
