Also, Surya Pratap Singh has written that this is an international fraud and strict action should be taken in it. Baba Ramdev’s company said that the drug has received a certificate of pharmaceutical product from the AYUSH ministry under the World Health Organization certification scheme .
Following this claim by Baba Ramdev, the WHO issued a statement saying that they have not approved any traditional medicines of Corona. After the launch of Coronil, Ramdev’s company issued a statement that after getting the certificate of pharmaceutical product, it can now be exported to around 158 countries. During the corona epidemic in the month of June last year, Baba Ramdev introduced this medicine to the people. But later Baba Ramdev had to face severe criticisms.
The Indian Medical Association has raised questions over the presence of Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan in Coronil’s program. The IMA has asked how right it is to release unscientific product as Union Health Minister? Also the IMA has said that Health Minister Harsh Vardhan himself is a doctor and he should not promote coronil in this way.
