Yoga guru and Patanjali founder Baba Ramdev claims to have developed a medicine for coronavirus, called ‘Coronil and Swasari’. 

He says it’s the first ayurvedic cure for the virus that has brought the world to its knees. 

Patanjali also claims that trials of Coronil have shown 100% recovery rate on the patients within 3-7 days.

At the launch of the medicine, Baba Ramdev told the mediapersons:

The whole country and the world was waiting for medicine or vaccine for coronavirus. We are proud to announce that the first Ayurvedic, clinically controlled trial based evidence and research-based medicine has been prepared by the combined efforts of Patanjali Research Centre and NIMS.

While adding:

We are launching Covid medicines Coronil and Swasari today. We conducted two trials of these, first clinical controlled study, which took place in Delhi, Ahmedabad, among many other cities. Under this 280 patients were included and 100% of those recovered. We were able to control coronavirus and its complications in this. After this the all-important clinical control trial was conducted.

The kit, which will last 30 days, is priced at ₹545. Now, Twitter (and me) had a hard time believing this, and here some of the reactions.

Baba Ramdev has said that while the medicine isn’t available anywhere right now, it will soon be. The customers will also have the option of ordering it from the Patanjali app.
