Yoga guru Baba Ramdev today asserted that his organisation Patanjali Ayurved followed all necessary protocols for developing the Coronil pill for treating coronavirus infections. Baba Ramdev held a press conference following a huge row over his firm’s ‘Corona Kit’ that, in turn, followed Patanjali‘s announcement that a pack of three medicines in the kit could cure patients of COVID-19.
Baba Ramdev pointed fingers at all who questioned the efficacy of the medicines. He explained how the clinical trials and research for the medicines were conducted. He said that Patanjali conducted randomised placebo-controlled clinical trials for the medicines where they found a 100% recovery rate in COVID-19 patients. Explaining how the medicines work, he said that the biggest danger is that the novel coronavirus enters the lungs, and starts to multiply. The medicines are able to control this multiplication, he claimed.
Emphasising on the licencing of Coronil and Sawsari, Baba Ramdev said that the medicines were produced under proper Ayurvedic licensing from the Rajasthan government. He said that the process of licencing in Ayurveda was based on the traditional characteristics of the herbs used.
Stressing on the difference between licencing and research, he said that Coronil had three active compounds — giloy, tulsi, ashwagandha and specific amounts of compound extracts. This, when administered to patients, showed the result of recovery from COVID-19.
The two medicines are effective together, but individual trials for the drugs have not been conducted yet, Baba Ramdev said on the efficacy of the medicines. He said that the research had followed all modern science protocols.
Te yoga guru claimed that this was not the first time that they are researching subjects of virology, and have conducted trials for 10 diseases including hepatitis, arthritis, heart diseases, dengue, to name a few.
The yoga guru stated that ”we have resolved our differences with the Ayush Ministry and all three medicines including Coronil will now be available in the market.” There is no metal found in these medicines, he added.
As countries across the world struggle to develop a cure for the deadly coronavirus infection, Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurveda had on Tuesday claimed that it has found the cure of the disease. Yoga guru Ramdev-run Patanjali Ayurved launched ‘Coronil tablet’ which is said to have constituents to cure coronavirus.
Patanjali said that they prepared the tablets with the joint efforts of Professor Balbir Singh Tomar and Acharya Balkrishna Coronil. Acharya Balkrishna said the company would share the results of clinical trial soon. He added that the patients treated by the said medicine have had tested negative.
The ayurvedic company said that the trail of the medicine was conducted on 280 patients and all were recovered. Talking about the medicine, Ramdev said that ‘Coronil’, made out of Ayurvedic elements such as Ashwagandha, Giloy, and Tulsi, could cure coronavirus positive patients within a few days with daily morning and evening dosages.
