COVID-19: Patanjali CEO Says It Never Claimed ‘Coronil’ Can Cure Or Control Coronavirus
In an apparent U-turn on its claims, Acharya Balkrishna said that Patanjali never claimed its drug could cure the highly-contagious Coronavirus that has caused deaths.
On Tuesday (June 30), Patanjali Ayurved Limited said that it never claimed to have made medicine for COVID-19. The Haridwar-based organisation has withdrawn from its earlier claim, in reply to the notice given by the Uttarakhand Ministry of AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy). “Patanjali has never claimed to make Coronavirus medicine. Rather COVID-19 patients have been cured with this medicine. The drug was made under the license issued by the AYUSH Ministry,” stated the reply by Patanjali Ayurved CEO Acharya Balakrishna to the notice.
“We made the combination of Tulsi, Giloy and Ashwagandha at an advance level, and when the clinical trials were done on the patients of COVID-19, they were cured. A conspiracy has been hatched against us and if the AYUSH Ministry tells us to conduct clinical trials once again then we are ready to face it,” he added. Earlier in the month, Patanjali Ayurved, in collaboration with NIMS University (National Institute of Medical Sciences), launched ‘Coronil’ and ‘Shwasari Vati’, claiming to cure Coronavirus patients.
