Uttarakhand: In a sudden turn, Patanjali Ayurved on Tuesday said it never made a medicine claiming to cure coronavirus. Giving clarification on the notice issued by the Uttarakhand Ayurved Department, Patanjali also denied making any medicine called ‘Corona kit’.
”That it is denied, we have made any medicine named as “Corona Kit”. We have only packed the following medicines “Divya Swasari Vati”, “Divya Coronil Tablet” & “Divya Anu Tail” in a shipping/packaging carton for shipping purposes. Further, we have not commercially sold any kit named “Coronil Kit” nor we have publicized it against the treatment of Corona (COVID- 19), instead of that we have only promoted the successful trial of the medicine before media,” media reports quoted Patanjali Ayurved CEO Acharya Balakrishna as saying.
In the statement written to the drug department, Patanjali also said that it only shared about the benefits of the medicine and its successful test on people and never said that it can cure coronavirus.
It may be recalled that on June 23, Patanjali Ayurved launched ‘corolin tablet’ in the presence of Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balakrishna. It claimed to have constituents to cure coronavirus. Patanjali has also said that the trail of the medicine was conducted on 280 patients and all were recovered.
During the launch, Ramdev had said that patients can be cured in just one week with the use of ‘coronil’ medicine, adding that it increases immunity power. Patanjali Yogpeeth has also said that the ‘coronil’ medicine will be available all over the country by next week.
