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.
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.
