A few days after Patanjali Ayurved’s Coronil medicine was certified by the Indian government’s Ministry of AYUSH, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) on promoting COVID-19 as the first evidence-based drug for prevention and treatment. Has raised objections The IMA stated in a press note that the claims of Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev’s coronil to DCGI and WHO’s approval were completely false.
The press release stated, “The World Health Organization (WHO) has clearly stated how effective Patanjali’s medication is for the treatment of COVID-19, we have neither reviewed nor certified it.” ”
Citing the code of ethics, the IMA said that Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan, who is himself a doctor by profession, should not have promoted coronil in this way. The statement said that a doctor would not accept or endorse any drug or drug in any form with its name, signature or photograph.
The IMA said that it would write to the National Medical Commission for a gross violation of the code of conduct prescribed by the Medical Council of India. IMA National President Dr. Jayalal asked, “Being the Union Health Minister, how right is it to release unscientific product?”
The IMA also tried to know that if coronil is so effective against disease, then why is the government spending so much money on vaccination?
It is known that last week, Patanjali Group founder Baba Ramdev launched Coronil in the presence of Union Ministers Dr Harshvardhan and Nitin Gadkari. The Haridwar-based organization claimed that the drug has received a Certificate of Pharmaceutical Product (CoPP) from the AYUSH section of the Central Drug Standards Control Organization as per WHO certification scheme.
