Haridwar, June 30: Patanjali gave clarification to Uttrakhand Drug department on medicine claiming cure to coronavirus saying that it never said to have made any such medicine.
Patanjali also reportedly denied making any medicine called 'Corona kit' but we have only packed the following medicines "Divya Swasari Vati", "Divya Coronil Tablet" & "Divya Anu Tail" in a shipping/packaging carton for shipping purpose.
Further we have not commercially sold any kit named as "Coronil Kit" nor we have publicized it against the treatment of Corona, instead of that we have only promoted the successful trail of the medicine before media.''
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.
Pertinent to mention here that on June 23, 2020, Patanjali Ayurved launched in full media 'corolin tablet' in presence of Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balakrishna which 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 the 'coronil' medicine will be available all over the country by next week.(Agencies)
But, hours after the launch of the medicine, Uttarakhand Ayush Ministry had issued notice to Patanjali saying that the licence issued was not to find a cure for coronavirus. The license was issued only for the production of immunity booster kits and fever medicine. The Ayush Ministry issued notice taking cognizance of news media reports about Patanjali Ayurved Ltd, Haridwar developing Ayurvedic medicines for the treatment of COVID-19. (As per inputys in ZMB)
