What is the coronavirus medicine developed by Patanjali called?
Yoga Guru Ramdev on Tuesday revealed that his organisation ‘Patanjali Ayurved’ has successfully developed a treatment to cure coronavirus within 7 days. Patanjali has claimed that this is the first evidence-based medicine which can effectively cure COVID-19.
What is the claim made by Patanjali Ayurved?
Patanjali Ayurved asserted that the newly developed medicines have shown a 100 per cent efficacy against coronavirus infection within 3-7 days. In addition, the clinical trials have reportedly revealed that the usage of the aforesaid medicine resulted in the reduction of hsCRP and IL-6 levels in the treatment group as compared to the placebo group. The Ayurvedic treatment also showed weaker IL-6 response causing a lesser chance of cytokine storm.
Acharya Balkrishna of the Patanjali Ayurvedic said that minerals with herbs have been added in the medicine to make it more effective in battling the coronavirus, adding that the medicine kit can be taken as prevention for coronavirus. Yoga Guru Ramdev Baba, present on the occasion of the launch of the medicine, said that the Patanjali developed coronavirus kit is not an immunity booster but a coronavirus cure.
Baba Ramdev, while talking about the trials of the newly developed medicine said, “We are launching COVID medicines Coronil and Swasari today. We conducted two trials of these, the first clinical controlled study that took place in Delhi, Ahmedabad, and many other cities. Under this 280 patients were included and 100 per cent of those have been recovered. We were able to control corona and its complications in this. After this, the all-important clinical control trial was conducted.”
Who made the Ayurvedic medicine?
The novel Ayurvedic medicine to combat and prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus has been prepared by the combined efforts of Patanjali Research Centre and National Institute of Medical Sciences, Jaipur.
Thanking the Director of National Institute of Medical Sciences Dr Balbir Singh, and other associated doctors and scientists, Baba Ramdev said, “With the help of NIMS, Jaipur we conducted the study of the new medicines. The biggest thing which came out of this is that within three days 69 per cent of patients recovered and became negative from positive cases and within seven days 100 per cent of them became negative.”
Baba Ramdev also said that necessary approvals for conducting the trials of medicine on patients had been taken from competent authorities.
