Patanjali’s coronavirus medicine: Patanjali’s Coronil can be rolled out to people only after Ayush Ministry gives the nod, AYUSH Minister Shripad Naik stated. A few hours after Yog guru Baba Ramdev’s ayurvedic consumer goods company Patanjali launched Coronil, a medicine to fight COVID-19, the Union Ministry of AYUSH put a halt on its advertisement. The ministry said that the medicine would have to be tested by it first before it can be rolled out for the people. Talking to news agency ANI, AYUSH minister Shripad Naik on Wednesday said that while the initiative taken by Patanjali during the pandemic is a good move, the medicine can only be rolled out with a due process.
