Many scientists predict that a safe and effective vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, could take 12-18 months to develop

However, Yoga guru Ramdev-run Patanjali Ayurved made a tall claim that it had discovered a substantial cure for coronavirus with high success rate

Ramdev claims that ‘Coronil tablet’, ‘Swasari Vati’ and ‘Anu Taila’ had shown “100 % favourable results” during clinical trials on Covid-19 patients

During the trial, he claimed, 69% patients recovered in 3 days, while the recovery rate over a period of seven days was 100%!

But governments and agencies have called out this claim

The AYUSH Ministry has sought details about the medicine and has directed Patanjali and Ramdev to stop advertising such claims

Facts of the claim and details of the stated scientific study are not known to the Ministry

At a time of this severe crisis, there couldn’t be anything more dangerous than fake claims about cures

The Uttarakhand Ayurved Dept will also issue a notice to Patanjali Ayurved, asking how they got permission to make the kit of medicines

Rajasthan govt will too, file a case against Baba Ramdev for conducting clinical trial on coronavirus patients
