Yoga guru Baba Ramdev run Patanjali has launched what they claim to be the first Ayurvedic medicine to treat coronavirus. The medicine, which has been named Coronil, was launched in Haridwar in Uttarakhand today.
Earlier this month, Patanjali’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Acharya Balkrishna, had claimed that the company has found a cure for COVID-19 caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The medicine is made of natural products like Ashwagandha, Giloy and Tulsi and as per Baba Ramdev has shown a 100 per cent recovery rate in COVID-infected people they gave it to.
“Proud launch of first and foremost evidence-based ayurvedic medicine for #corona contagion, #SWASARI_VATI, #CORONIL, is scheduled for tomorrow at 12 noon from #Patanjali Yogpeeth Haridwar,” Balkrishna tweeted on Monday.
Balkrishna claimed that Ayurvedic medicine developed by the company has been able to cure COVID-19 patients within 5-14 days.
“We appointed a team of scientists after COVID-19 outbreak. Firstly, the simulation was done and compounds were identified which can fight the virus and stop its spread in the body. Then, we conducted a clinical case study on hundreds of positive patients and we have got 100 per cent favourable results,” Balkrishna was quoted as saying by ANI.
“After taking our medicine, COVID patients recovered in 5-14 days and then tested negative. So, we can say the cure for COVID is possible through Ayurveda. We are performing controlled clinical trials only. In the next 4-5 days, evidence and data will be released by us,” he added.
Balkrishan also suggested people to practice Yoga to keep themselves fit and their immune system strong.
