Patanjali CEO Balkrishna claims finding coronavirus cure in Ayurveda
New Delhi : Patanjali CEO Acharya Balkrishna has claimed that Patanjali Ayurveda Limited had found a 100% effective cure of coronavirus within a span of five to 14 days. Patanjali is one of India’s most well-known ayurvedic brands.
Acharya Balkrishna, also the co-founder of Patanjali, said that the company appointed a team of scientists after the outbreak began.
"First, the simulation was done and compounds were identified which can fight the virus and stop its spread in the body," he told reporters in Uttarakhand. "Then, we conducted a clinical case study on hundreds of positive patients and we have got 100% favourable results."
Currently, there are no certified vaccines of coronavirus in the world. Doctors around the world are trying to come up with a variety of solutions that might alter the course of the disease.
The Health Ministry and ICMR have not made any official comment on Balkrishna's claims.
He added that the company is currently conducting controlled clinical trials and will release evidence in less than a week. “After taking our medicine, Covid patients recovered in 5-14 days and then tested negative,” Balkrishna said. “So, we can say the cure for Covid is possible through Ayurveda.”
Balkrishna, however, did not mention where these clinical trials were being perfomed.
India is the fourth-worst hit country in the world, with cases rising sharply each day. It reported a record single-day jump in cases on Sunday with 11,929 new infections. The total number of cases has risen to 3,20,922.
