Maharashtra Food and Drug Administration Minister Rajendra Shingne has said that the drug 'Coronil' prepared by Yogguru Ramdev's company Patanjali Ayurved Ltd does not treat Kovid-19. He has warned that action will be taken if Patanjali misleads the people of the state by making a false claim. The minister said on Friday that if wrong claims are made by the producers of coronil, action will be taken under the Drug and Miracle Treatment (Convulsive Advertisement) Act, 1954 with the help of the State Home Department.
