On 19 February, Baba Ramdev presented the Scientific Research Paper on First Evidence Based Medicine of Corona in the presence of Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Health Minister.
The Indian Medical Association (IMA) slammed Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan for supporting Patanjali’s corona vaccine coronil. The IMA said on Monday that according to the rules of the Medical Council of India (MCI), no doctor can promote any drug. Harshvardhan himself is a doctor, so he has acted against the rules. The World Health Organization (WHO) has also rejected Patanjali’s claims about coronil drug.
What did the WHO say?
The WHO made it clear on the evening of 19 February that it had neither reviewed any traditional medicine nor given a certificate to anyone. WHO South-East Asia gave this information through social media.
The drug was launched on February 19
Yoga medicine Baba Ramdev launched the Corona drug on 19 February. Union ministers Dr. Harsh Vardhan and Nitin Gadkari were also present in the program. During this time, a scientific research paper on First Evidence Based Medicine of Corona was presented.
Ramdev claims- the drug is WHO certified
In the program, Ramdev, the co-founder of the Ayurvedic firm, claimed that Ayurvedic medicine is WHO certified. He claimed coronil to be a better medicine to treat corona. He had said that clinical trials have also been done.
Balakrishna gave clarification
After this, Acharya Balakrishna, managing director of Patanjali Aryveda, gave a clarification. He had said that the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) has given a Pharmaceutical Product Certificate (CPP) for coronil. The WHO does not approve or reject any medication.
