Ministry stops Patanjali's Coronil, asks where is the approval

Swamy Ramdev has claimed that his medicine cured coronavirus patients 100% in clinical trials, but the Ministry says it has not been approached for permission to market the medicine. Patanjali Ayurved Ltd has been asked to provide the necessary documents at the earliest. Ramdev's plan was to release the medicine in the market in a week's time. A kit for one course costs Rs 545.

NEW DELHI, June 24: The Ayush Ministry has restrained Patanjali, Swamy Ramdev's company producing Ayurvedic medicines, from selling and publicising their new product, Coronil, for the treatment of coronavirus. The Ministry stated that the product has no requisite approvals.

The advertisement of Coronil violates the provisions of the Drugs and Magic Remedies Act of 1954 as also an April notification of the Ministry of Health on claims of new drugs for coronavirus as the people were being misguided and cheated by misleading advertisements and fake medicines.

“Facts of the claim and details of the stated scientific study are not known to the Ministry,” the Ayush Ministry said in a statement. Patanjali Ayurved Ltd has been asked to provide at the earliest the details of the name and composition of the medicines being claimed will treat Covid-19; the site (s)/hospital(s) where the research study was conducted; protocol, sample size, Institutional Ethics Committee clearance, CTRI registration and results data of the study(ies) and to stop advertising/publicising such claims till the issue is duly examined.

Ramdev has since replied to the Ministry's charges and Patanjali has sent documents supporting its claims of all approvals needed and of clinical trials.

Launching the new drug on Tuesday, Ramdev had claimed that the medicine is a 100% cure for the viral epidemic. In clinical trials, it cured 69% patients in 3 days and 100% in 7 days, he said.

The Coronil is in a kit that has other medications too to be taken in combination. One kit that lasts 30 days costs Rs 545. The kit will have medicines for 30 days. It was to be available in the market as well as online in a week, Ramdev said. He says the medicine is both preventive and curative.

Meanwhile, AYUSH Minister Shripad Naik said, “It's a good thing that Baba Ramdev has given a new medicine to the country but as per rule it has to come to Ayush Ministry first. They even said that they have sent a report. We'll look into it and permission will be given after seeing the report.”

The pandemic has infected 92.71 lakh people and claimed 4.76 lakh lives across the world so far. Cases in India have crossed 4.56 lakh while the toll has reached 14,476.
