The Ministry of Ayush, whose function is to strengthen national and community health programmes, has hauled Ayurveda brand Patanjali for airing advertisements that claim its products Coronil and Swasari can help patients recover from Covid-19 in 7 days.

While Patanjali claims that the medicine has been developed by Patanjali Research Centre, Haridwar (Uttarakhand) in collaboration with National Institute of Medical Science, Jaipur, the facts of the claim and details of the scientific study are not known to the Ministry.

The company has been asked to provide at the earliest details of the name and composition of the medicines being claimed for COVID treatment so that the Ministry can verify its claims. The Ministry has also requested concerned State Licensing Authority of Uttrakhand Government to provide copies of license and product approval details of the Ayurvedic medicines being claimed for the treatment of COVID -19.

Patanjali, CEO, Acharya Balkrishna has responded from his personal Twitter handle stating that "यह सरकार आयुर्वेद को प्रोत्साहन व गौरव देने वाली है जो communication gap था वह दूर हो गया है व Randomised Placebo Controlled Clinical Trials के जितने भी Standard Parameters हैं उन सबको 100% fullfill किया है इसकी सारी जानकारी हमने आयुष मंत्रालय को दे दी है |"
