“We’ve prepared the first Ayurvedic-clinically controlled, research, evidence and trial-based medicine for Covid-19. We conducted a clinical case study and clinically controlled trial, and found 69% patients recovered in three days and 100% patients recovered in seven days,” said Baba Ramdev. The yoga guru insisted that Coronil was not an immunity booster but a coronavirus cure, claiming that tests had been conducted even on people on ventilators.

Patanjali claims that the clinical trials were conducted by Patanjali Research Institute, Haridwar and National Institute of Medical Sciences, Jaipur. We appointed a team of scientists after COVID-19 outbreak. Firstly, the simulation was done and compounds were identified which can fight the virus and stop its spread in the body. Then, we conducted a clinical case study on hundreds of positive patients and we have got 100 per cent favourable results,” MD Acharya Balkrishna said.
