COVID-19 Treatment: Patanjali launches Ayurvedic drug ‘Coronil’ to treat Coronavirus infection

Yoga guru Ramdev-run Patanjali Ayurved will launch an Ayurvedic medicine, Coronil, to help treat the novel coronavirus infection on Tuesday at Patanjali Yogpeeth in Haridwar, Uttarakhand. Earlier this month, Patanjali’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Acharya Balkrishna, had claimed that the company has found a cure for COVID-19 caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Baba Ramdev had revealed that COVID-19 patients who were given Coronil – which is made from a mixture of Ashwagandha, Giloy and Tulsi – showed 100 per cent recovery rate.


Balkrishna tweeted on Monday, “Proud launch of first and foremost evidence-based ayurvedic medicine for #corona contagion, #SWASARI_VATI, #CORONIL, is scheduled for tomorrow at 12 noon from #Patanjali Yogpeeth Haridwar.” He claimed that an Ayurvedic medicine developed by the company has been able to cure Coronavirus patients within 5-14 days.

Balkrishna was quoted as saying by ANI, “We appointed a team of scientists after COVID-19 outbreak. Firstly, the simulation was done and compounds were identified which can fight the virus and stop its spread in the body. Then, we conducted a clinical case study on hundreds of positive patients and we have got 100 per cent favourable results.”

He added, “After taking our medicine, COVID patients recovered in 5-14 days and then tested negative. So, we can say the cure for COVID is possible through Ayurveda. We are performing controlled clinical trials only. In the next 4-5 days, evidence and data will be released by us.”

Balkrishna CEO advised that people should practice yoga, and keep themselves healthy through proper diet to boost the immune system.
