Patanjali Coronil medicine: Since Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali launched its medicine ‘Coronil’, the medicine has been in news for various reasons. However, news agency ANI quoted Patanjali co-founder Acharya Balakrishna on Tuesday as saying that the company never said that the medicine ‘Coronil’ could cure or control coronavirus. He added that Patanjali had said they developed medicines. While using these medicines for the controlled clinical trials, the coronavirus patients were cured, he further said, stating that there was no confusion in this regard.
Soon after ‘Coronil’ was launched, the Union Ministry of AYUSH had stopped Patanjali from advertising the medicine, until they conducted their own tests. Moreover, the Uttarakhand Ayurved Department had said that the company had not mentioned ‘Coronil’ being a cure for coronavirus while applying for the licence.
Now, the state’s Ayurved department Licence Officer YS Rawat has told ANI that in response to their notice, Patanjali has said that no ‘Corona kit’ has been packaged by them. Rawat further said that Patanjali printed a representative image of coronavirus on the packaging of Coronil.
