Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurved announces ‘first evidence-based medicine for COVID-19’

The yoga guru released a scientific research paper on “the first evidence-based medicine for COVID-19 by Patanjali” on Friday. Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari were also present at the event.

ANI tweeted a picture of the event and wrote in their post, “Yog Guru Ramdev releases scientific research paper on ‘the first evidence-based medicine for #COVID19 by Patanjali'. Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari are also present at the event.”

Patanjali Ayurved has claimed that the medicine is the first evidence-based medicine for COVID-19 and that it is CoPP-WHO GMP certified.

The certificate of a pharmaceutical product (CoPP) is a certificate issued in the format recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), which establishes the status of the pharmaceutical product and of the applicant for this certificate in the exporting country.

Earlier on June 23, 2020, Patanjali had launched the coronil tablet with the joint efforts of Professor Balbir Singh Tomar and Acharya Balkrishna. At the time Acharya Balkrishna said the company would share the results of clinical trials soon, and that the patients treated by the said medicine had tested negative.

After facing a lot of criticism from the scientific community, Patanjali gave clarification on the medicine claiming cure to coronavirus saying that it never said to have made any such medicine. Giving clarification on the notice issued by the Uttrakhand Drug department, Patanjali also denied making any medicine called ‘Corona kit'.
