[FYI] Ayurvedic Medicine CoronaKit By Patanjali
The post is shared to make you aware of the issues that are coming up regarding the Ayurvedic medicine introduced by Patanjali before it can be used as a cure for COVID-19.
Below post has been circulating on social media.
Verification: The CoronilKit invented by Patanjali to cure COVID-19 is asked to stop advertising about the medicine
Patanjali claims to have invented Ayurvedic medicine for COVID-19. There is a protocol that needs to be followed before any medicine is made available for the patients. There are few loopholes that came into existence after Patanjali declared about the CoronaKit. Patanjali is asked by Central Trial Registration Of India ( CTRI ) to give all the information related to medicine, trial, contents etc. CTRI keeps the record of the trial of new medicine. To sell the medicine Central Drugs Standard Control Organizations (CDSCO ) has to give a certificate. This is noticed that the Indian Medical Council ( IMA ) has not shared any information about the medicine invented by Patanjali. Misleading advertising of medicines is not permitted according to Drugs and Magic Remedies 1954.
