HIGHLIGHTS

  • Patanjali Ayurved on Wednesday said it never claimed that its newly-tested medicine could cure Covid-19
  • That clinical trials of its newly tested medicines indicated that
  • Last week, Patanjali had announced that its newly tested medicines could cure coronavirus, following which the Ayush Ministry had said it had not approved these products for the treatment of the virus

The press briefing comes a day after Ministry of Ayush said Patanjali Ayurved will not be allowed to sell its medicines with claims of curing Covid-19, though the company can sell its Divya Coronil tablets as an immunity booster and gave it the licenses to make all its three medicines, namely Divya Coronil, Divya SwasariVati, and Divya AnuTaila. The Ministry also said in a letter addressed to Patanjali that the packaging and labeling displayed on the medicines cannot claim the cure of Covid-19. “The advertising and publicity of the drugs should be ensured following the relevant provisions of the Drugs & Magic Remedies (Objectionable Ads) Act,” the letter states. ET has seen a copy of the letter.

Patanjali Ayurved last week launched[i] a drug called Coronil, claiming it had cured within a week all COVID-19 patients who took part in a trial conducted at the privately-run National Institute of Medical Sciences in Jaipur. The claim triggered a row, with the Union AYUSH[ii] ministry telling the herbal products firm not to sell the drug until it has examined the issue. Uttarakhand's Ayurveda department said the firm had only applied for a license to manufacture an immunity booster and not a cure for COVID-19. “It may be ensured that on the package and label displayed on the medicines (Divya Coronil Tablet and Divya Shwashari Vati), no claim for the cure of Covid-19 should be mentioned,” said the drug policy section of the AYUSH ministry in an email to the Uttarakhand Licencing Authority, a copy of which is with News18. “The advertisement and the publicity of the drugs should be ensured following the relevant provisions of the Drugs and Magic Remedies,” it added.

All in all, if not all people get the cure, I am sure the level of its impact could be well in good for the coronavirus patients as we all know that Patanjali is an Ayurveda seller and Ayurveda are free of any side effects, so don't blindly rely only on it, but why not consume it for its treatment.
