CEO Balkrishna now says that company had never claimed to have made a medicine to cure Covid.

The chief executive officer of Patanjali Acharya Balkrishna on Tuesday said that the company had never claimed that its newly-tested medicines Coronil would treat coronavirus.

Recently, Yoga Guru Ramdev and Patanjali CEO Acharya Balkrishna caught in controversy after it launched a medicine called Coronil to treat Covid-19 and claimed that it has shown positive results when tested on covid infected individuals with mild and average symptoms.

Patanjali CEO Acharya Balkrishna said that it reeks of a conspiracy after the company responded to notices from Uttarakhand’s drug regulatory body.

An FIR was also registered accusing the company of making misleading claims. The Uttarakhand High Court also issued notice to the Centre on a petition over the claims made by the company on Tuesday.

CEO Balkrishna now says that company had never claimed to have made a medicine to cure Covid.

He said, ‘We mentioned Coronil as ayurvedic medicine for immunity boosting, fever, cough and allergic problems’.

He even insisted that the company had said that the clinical trials indicated that Covid-19 patients, when given this medicine, got cured.

“Only results of clinical trial based curing of positive patients were claimed by us,” he said.
