The race to cure coronavirus is on. Days after declaring that Patanjali had finally found a “cure” to COVID-19, a deadly infection that has affected more than 4 lakh people in India alone, Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Tuesday launched Ayurvedic “Coronil”. The anti-corona remedy including “Swasari” has been developed through research by Patanjali Research Institute, Haridwar and National Institute of Medical Sciences University Jaipur.

Ramdev said, “The entire world is waiting for a vaccine to cure Corona and we are proud to say that through clinically controlled trial based evidence-based method we have first ayurvedic medicine to cure corona.”

“We conducted a clinical case study & clinical controlled trial, and found 69% patients recovered in 3 days and 100% patients recovered in 7 days,” Ramdev further said.
