Patanjali’s Coronil gets Ayush Ministry certification, Baba Ramdev releases research on ‘first evidence-based Ayurvedic medicine against COVID’

The certificate of a pharmaceutical product (CoPP) is a certificate issued in the format recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), which establishes the status of the pharmaceutical product and the applicant in the exporting country.

Baba Ramdev on Friday released a scientific research paper on the first evidence-based medicine for COVID-19 by Patanjali Ayurved. According to Baba Ramdev, Patanjali’s Coronil Tablet, a medicine to fight off the coronavirus has received a certification from the Ayush Ministry as per the WHO format. The announcement was made in a press conference which was also attended by Union Ministers Dr Harsh Vardhan and Nitin Gadkari.

Coronil’s certificate of a pharmaceutical product (CoPP) is a certificate issued by the Ayush section of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation as per the WHO certification scheme, which establishes the status of the pharmaceutical product and the applicant in the exporting country. After receiving the WHO approval, Coronil will be available for exports to 158 countries across the globe to fight the menace of COVID-19.

It is notable here that the Ayush Ministry has now recognised Coronil as a medicine for supporting measure in COVID-19.

On the occasion, Baba Ramdev assured that best practices and recommended procedures have been followed in manufacturing the medicine. Baba Ramdev also took a swipe at the detractors of the Coronil Tablet, stating that some people think India is not competent enough to research in the field of Ayurveda, relying on research by foreign-based entities to be confident of the efficacy of a medicine.

Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan heaps praise on Ayurvedic medicine system

Union Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan said that Ayurveda has slowly gained prominence in a host of countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Colombia, Mauritius, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and China. He added that across the world, Ayurveda of India is being institutionalised in the regular medical system. A doctor with a degree in Ayurveda is welcomed in many countries for the skill he/she possesses.

The Union Minister said the information on Ayurveda should be credited to the thousands of years old Vedas and scriptures. Dr Harsh Vardhan also spoke about how Ayurveda is massively contributing to the Indian economy and how it is increasingly being accepted within the country as well as abroad.

“Ayurveda has Rs 30,000 Cr economy in India. As per official data, it used to see a growth of 15-20% every yr pre-COVID. Post-COVID, this growth rate has risen to 50-90%. It’s an indication that people have accepted it. There’s a marked improvement in exports & FDI,” said the health minister. 

Patanjali was earlier ordered to sell it only as ‘immuno-booster’

The scientific paper and the approval by the Ayush Ministry vindicates Patanjali Ayurved’s claims on its medicine ‘Coronil Tablet’ that it made during its launch last year. In June 2020, Ramdev had claimed that Coronil can cure COVID-19 patients. However, the Ayush Ministry immediately put restrictions on Patanjali on selling it. Later, the Union ministry confirmed that Patanjali can sell the product only as an immunity booster and not as a medicine to cure the infection.
