New Delhi: After much clamour and criticism regarding Patanjali’s Coronil medicine, 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.

Releasing 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 purpose.”

“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 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% patients recovered in 3 days and 100% patients recovered in 7 days,” Baba Ramdev said at the launch event.
