Launched last Tuesday for treatment of coronavirus patients after tall claims from Patanjali owner Baba Ramdev, the new drug – Coronil was guaranteed to cure COVID-19 patients in three days. After drawing much flak from the AYUSH ministry and even the Uttrakhand government which issued a notice to Patanjali for launching a drug claiming to be a cure for coronavirus when it had only applied for an immunity booster against cough and fever, Patanjali CEO Acharya Balkrishna and founder Baba Ramdev took an instant u-turn.

Releasing an official statement, Patanjali said “That it is denied, we have made any medicine named as ‘Corona Kit’. We have only packed the following medicines – ‘Divya Swasari Vati’, “Divya Coronil Tablet’ & ‘Divya Anu Tail’ in a shipping/packaging carton for shipping purpose.” Not only did the company deny any guarantees on the COVID-19 curing abilities of the drug but also took a u-turn on ever launching Coronil.
