New Delhi: Just hours after yoga guru Baba Ramdev claimed that Patanjali has discovered a medicine to ‘beat’ the novel coronavirus, the Ayush Ministry of Uttarakhand clarified that the licence issued was not to found find a cure for coronavirus.
Dr. YS Rawat, Joint Director State Medicinal Licensing Authority from Uttarakhand said: “Divya Pharmacy did not apply for license of any kind of medicine related to Corona nor were they given any license in this regard. The license was issued only for immunity boosters and fever medicine. But now that it has come to the attention of the AYUSH department, a notice will be issued to Divya Pharmacy. It their reply is not satisfactory then their current licenses will be canceled.”
On Tuesday, Ramdev had launched ‘Coronil’ by claiming it to be the Ayurvedic medicine for COVID-19. He even claimed to have cured COVID-19 diagnosed patients with the coronil tablets.
Ramdev said that patients can be cured in just one week with the use of ‘coronil’ medicine. In order to increase immunity power with this drug named ‘CORONIL’, Patanjali has also created ‘Divya Corona Kit’. Patanjali Yogpeeth has said that the ‘coronil’ medicine will be available all over the country by next week.
