Indian consumer goods company Patanjali Ayurved is set to unveil “CORONIL” an evidence-based ayurvedic medicine which the company claims extensively to have cured several positive cases of COVID-19 caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Yoga guru Ramdev-run organization will reveal CORONIL which will help in the treatment of the novel coronavirus infection, today at Patanjali Yogpeeth in Haridwar, Uttarakhand. Earlier this month, Patanjali’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Acharya Balkrishna, had alleged that the company had found a cure for COVID-19.

Baba Ramdev revealed earlier that COVID-19 patients who were given Coronil – a composition of Ashwagandha, Giloy and Tulsi, exhibited a 100 percent recovery rate.

Mr. Balkrishna insisted that an Ayurvedic medicine produced by the organization has been able to cure COVID-19 patients within 5-14 days. According to the firm they have carried out ‘randomized placebo-controlled clinical trials’ and during the press conference, they will reveal the outcome of the test.

“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 percent favorable results,” Balkrishna was quoted as saying by ANI

“After taking our medicine, COVID patients recovered in 5-14 days and then tested negative. So, we can say the cure for COVID is possible through Ayurveda. We are performing controlled clinical trials only. In the next 4-5 days, evidence and data will be released by us,” Mr. Balkrishna added.

Even after the escalating hype behind the disclosure, relevant organizations such as the Ayurveda Medical Association of India, Central Council of Indian Medicine and India’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare have chosen to remain silent on the matter.
