‘Coronil' no Cure For COVID-19': Netizens troll Baba Ramdev for changing his statement after FIR

In a major embarrassment for Patanjali, Baba Ramdev has finally clarified the reality of 'Coronil Kit' which was allegedly a cure for Coronavirus. The Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev-led company on Tuesday issued a clarification to the Uttrakhand Drug department saying it has not made or shipped any medicine called ‘Corona Kit’. It also denied claims of calling the new medicine a “cure” for coronavirus.
In an official statement, Patanjali said, “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 as ‘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,” the statement noted adding that they never said the medicines were a cure for the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Coronil tablet was launched last Tuesday for the treatment of coronavirus patients. “We’ve prepared the first Ayurvedic-clinically controlled, research, evidence, and trial based medicine for COVID-19. We conducted a clinical case study and clinical controlled trial, and found 69% of patients recovered in 3 days, and 100% patients recovered in 7 days,” Baba Ramdev said at the launch event.
“We conducted a clinical case study on hundreds of positive patients and we have got 100 percent favorable results,” CEO of Patanjali Ayurved Acharya Balkrishna had claimed.
However, the central government’s AYUSH ministry later charged at Patanjali for publicizing a COVID “cure” without an appropriate license.
