Haridwar : Yoga guru Swami Ramdev-run Patanjali Ayurvedic Medicines Today launched an Ayurvedic medicine, Coronil, claiming that it will help to treat the novel corona virus infection.
The company said that clinical control trials of the medicine were carried out adhering to standardized protocols and within the span of 3 to 15 days, all the COVID-19 positive patients transformed into negative ones without observing any mortality.
The medicine is launched after long research that was jointly conducted by the Patanjali Research Institute, Haridwar and the National Institute of Medical Science, Jaipur. Patanjali claims that medicine can cure COVID-19 within 14 days.
However, the company has yet not disclosed the details of the clinical studies for the tablet while sources said that no approval has been granted to this drug.
The Ayush ministry refused to comment on this issue while the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has said they have no idea. Besides, the government notification bars companies from advertising a cure without government approval.
The medicine was launched with the team of scientists, researchers and doctors involved in the trials at Patanjali Yogpeeth in Haridwar, Uttarakhand.
The tablet will be made available in the Patanjali stores in the next one week, Swami Ramdev said at the launch of the medicine.
