Patanjali COVID-19 'cure' Coronil: Experts ask company to come clean on clinical trials, provide data

Patanjali has to provide clinical trial data and also share details of when and where trials were conducted, say experts.

June 26, 2020 / 03:03 PM IST

Patanjali Ayurved needs to back its claims of having found a drug for treating COVID-19 with clinical trial data and scientific evidence as a lot of questions have been left unanswered, experts told Moneycontrol.

Some of them even accused Yoga guru Ramdev’s company of repackaging well-known Ayurvedic herbs, saying the company violated procedures and ministry guidelines in rushing to claim a breakthrough.

On June 23, Ramdev told media that an Ayurvedic medicine developed by his company cured patients of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the coronavirus, with 100 percent success.

Patanjali’s claims were a clear violation of Drugs and Magic Remedies Act, said Amulya Nidhi of Peoples Health Movement & Swasthya Adhikar Manch.
