Patanjali on 23rd June 2020 launched 'Coronil and Swasari', what it claims is the Ayurvedic cure for treating COVID-19, which they said has been shown 100 percent favorable results during clinical trials on affected patients, at Patanjali Yogpeeth in Haridwar.

Acharya Balkrishna, MD of Patanjali Ayurved, claimed that an Ayurvedic medicine developed by the company has been able to cure COVID-19 patients within 3-14 days.

Highlights from the Patanjali's Coronil kit launch event:

• A total of 100 coronavirus positive patients were recruited for the controlled clinical trial, Patanjali claims. Of which 95 were studied, 1 patient was lost on the follow-up details and 4 patients withdrew consent between the study, claims Patanjali.

Interesting read ! However, it is clear that this was tested on asymptomatic patients only. The need for furthur research is very much necessary for the sake of symptomatic patients,as the hospitals are running jam pack with Symptomatic Covid patients. I am confident that Patanjali will,with the permission of Ayush, be able to study more in this area.
