“We appointed a team of scientists after COVID-19 outbreak. Firstly, the simulation was done and compounds were identified which can fight the virus and stop its spread in the body. Then, we conducted a clinical case study on hundreds of positive patients and we have got 100 per cent favourable results,” CEO Balkrishna told ANI.
He claimed that patients who took the medicine recovered within 14 days and then tested negative. “So, we can say the cure for COVID is possible through Ayurveda. We are performing controlled clinical trials only. In the next 4-5 days, evidence and data will be released by us,” he said.
The Patanjali “cure” comes at a time when researchers around the world are pulling out all the stops in search of a vaccine for the horrific virus that has taken the world by its palm.
Notably, India’s COVID-19 count on Monday increased by 14,821 and 445 deaths, crossing 4.25 lakh cases in total. At least 13,699 persons have died of the deadly disease.
