Patanjali says ‘No more Communication Gap’, gave all details of the Coronil kit to the Government

Soon after the Central government asked Patanjali for all details of the Coronil Kit that claims to cure coronavirus, the company responded, saying it has given all details to the government.

Issuing a statement, Patanjali CEO Acharya Balkrishna said that the communication gap has been done away with and his company has 100% fulfilled all standard parameters for Randomised Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trials.

Acharya Balkrishna said, “This government provides encouragement and pride to Ayurveda. The communication gap has been done away with and we have 100% fulfilled all standard parameters for Randomised Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trials. We’ve given information for the same to Ministry of AYUSH.”

The statement from the Patanjali comes hours after the AYUSH Ministry asked yoga guru Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurveda to provide the details of the medicine. It claimed it is for the treatment of COVID-19. The ministry also asked the firm to stop advertising the product until the “issue is examined. Earlier in the day, the Patanjali Ayurveda launched the Coronil and Swasari’ medicine with the claim that it has discovered a cure for COVID-19.

However, the ministry said the facts of the claim and details of the stated scientific study are not known to it.

Patanjali has also been asked for details of the sample size, sites and hospitals where the research study was conducted and the Institutional Ethics Committee clearance, the ministry said.

The ministry said in its statement, “The concerned Ayurvedic drug manufacturing company has been informed that such advertisements of drugs including Ayurvedic medicines are regulated under the provisions of Drugs and Magic Remedies (Objectionable Advertisements) Act, 1954 and Rules thereunder and the directives issued by the Central Government in the wake of COVID outbreak.”
