Ramdev Baba’s Patanjali on Tuesday (June 23) launched an Ayurvedic medicine kit which the company claimed can cure coronavirus within seven days, which is lesser than the usual 14-day period.

Even as scientists and doctors across the world are trying all permutations and combinations to find the vaccine for the COVID-19 infection, Patanjali has claimed the kit has shown “100 per cent favourable results during clinical trials on patients.”

The company’s founder, Yoga guru Ramdev, said the medicines “Coronil and Swasari” were developed after conducting research and trials on 280 patients across the country.

“The whole country and the world was waiting for medicine or vaccines for corona. We are proud to announce that the first Ayurvedic, clinically controlled trial-based evidence and research-based medicine has been prepared by the combined efforts of Patanjali Research Centre and NIMS,” Ramdev was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

“We are launching COVID medicines Coronil and Swasari today. We conducted two trials of these, the first clinical controlled study, which took place in Delhi, Ahmedabad, among many other cities. Under this 280 patients were included and 100 per cent of those recovered. We were able to control Corona and its complications in this. After this the all-important clinical control trial was conducted,” he claimed.

Even as there is no scientific evidence of any alternative cure for COVID-19, vaccines and other trials are being conducted in several countries.

Ramdev said that Patanjali collaborated with National Institute of Medical Sciences or NIMS University, Jaipur, in the project.

“With the help of NIMS, Jaipur we conducted the clinical control study on 95 patients. The biggest thing which came out of this is that within three days 69 per cent patients recovered and became negative from positive (cases) and within seven days 100 per cent of them became negative,” said Ramdev.

The Corona kit will be made available at just ₹545, said Acharya Balkrishna, chief executive officer of Patanjali, adding that the kit is for 30 days.

“This medicine kit is not available anywhere for now and will be made available at Patanjali stores in a week, said Baba Ramdev, adding that an app will be launched for the delivery of the corona kit.

He claimed that necessary approvals for conducting trials of the medicine on patients had been taken from competent authorities.

As for testing alternative cures, the World Health Organization has issued a word of caution.

It says while “some western, traditional or home remedies may provide comfort and alleviate symptoms of COVID-19, there is no evidence that current medicine can prevent or cure the disease. WHO does not recommend self-medication with any medicines, including antibiotics, as a prevention or cure for COVID-19. However, there are several ongoing clinical trials that include both western and traditional medicines.”

Earlier, the National Institute of Siddha (NIS) in Chennai has claimed that it has treated 160 patients infected with the coronavirus in a span shorter than the normal recovery time.

The institute has also requested the Tamil Nadu government to hand over all COVID-care centres in the city to Siddha practitioners. However, both modern medicine and Siddha practitioners remain sceptical about the prospect.

The institute has said it was ready with combinations of Siddha drugs and claimed that these could be a possible medication for COVID-19. However, it is yet to administer these drugs on a large number of patients.
