Sale of tablet which ‘helps combat Covid’ banned in Maharashtra | Mumbai News – Times of India


MUMBAI: State home minister Anil Deshmukh has said that sale of Patanjali Ayurveda’s Coronil tablets will not be allowed in Maharashtra without proper certification from competent health organisations.
The Indian Medical Association (IMA) expressed shock over the “blatant lie of World Health Organisation (WHO) certification” for Coronil tablets which Patanjali claims is an evidence-based medicine to fight Covid-19.
Yoga guru Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurved had on February 19 said that the Coronil tablet had received certification from the Ayush ministry as a medicine supporting Covid-19 treatment according to the World Health Organisation’s certification scheme.
“The #IMA has questioned the said ‘clinical trials’ of #Coronil & WHO refuted the false claims made by #Patanjali Ayurveda for giving any certificate regarding its effectiveness for #Covid19 treatment,” Deshmukh further said in his tweet.
Deshmukh said in a tweet. “Launching such a drug hurriedly and being endorsed by two senior Central Union ministers is highly deplorable. Selling of #Coronil without proper certification from competent health organizations like #WHO, #IMA and others will not be allowed in Maharashtra.”
