The following are the essential details which you need to know about "Coronil kit".

What is Coronil?

Coronil is the first Ayurvedic, clinically controlled trial-based evidence and a research-based medicine for coronavirus. This medicine has been developed in joint research by Patanjali Research Institute, National Institute of Medical Science (NIMS), Jaipur.

The Patanjali Ayurveda mentioned that "Coronil" is based on a clinically approved control study whose trial was tested on corona patients across major cities including Delhi, Ahmedabad, Meerut etc.



Clinical trials of Coronil

Patanjali had conducted two trials of Coronil and Swasari. First, a clinical-controlled study, which took place in different cities, includes Delhi and Ahmedabad, Meerut etc.

In the initial stages, the Patanjali studied 280 patients. "In the first three days, 65 per cent of the patients got recovered, and by seven days the recovery was 100 per cent, where 0% death rate and 100% recovery rate has been observed. 

After controlling the disease and its complications, the all-important clinical control trial was conducted. The data of the trial will be released as evidence in the next few days." said Baba Ramdev.

The Coronil Kit

The Coronil kit consists of three medicines, Andu Oil which has to be poured in nostrils and two medicines in tablet form, Coronil tablet and Swasari Vati tablet. Patanjali Ayurved tweeted to say that they have used active compounds of Ashwagandha, Giloy and Tulsi in the new Covid-19 medicine.

Coronil Dosage

The three medicines which comprise of Coronil are Andu Oil which is to be poured in nostrils (3-5 drops) and two medicines in tablet form with 3 tablets for 3 times in a day. 

Patanjali prescribes two tablets should be consumed with hot water half an hour after each meal. 

This quantity is suitable for people between 15 to 80 years of age, children between the age of 6-14 years can take this medicine, but the dosage should be half of what is prescribed for adults, said Patanjali Ayurved.

Why Coronil kit has a chance to beat Covid-19?

Coronil works on the respiratory system of the body as coronavirus affects the respiratory system due to which its patients lose the ability to breathe resulting in death.The ayurvedic ingredients in the Coronil improve the body's internal immunity and fight other Corona symptoms including fever, cough, and cold.  

Patanjali claims to discover that natural phytochemicals in Ashwagandha, Giloy and Tulsi indeed have potentials to combat COVID-19 and its pathogenicity. 

Taken together, Ashwagandha, Giloy and Tulsi would strengthen the innate immunity to fight off COVID-19 infections. Therefore these medicines are formed with a considerable amount of this ayurvedic component.

Presence of these poly-herbs compounds in Tablet Swasari Ras with proven lung-protective attributes would serve as a preferred formulation for symptomatic treatment of respiratory illnesses observed in COVID-19 patients.

Is there any need of allopathic medicines besides coronil?

When asked if any allopathic medicines should be taken besides Coronil for coronavirus cure, Swami Ramdev said there's simply no need for any allopathic medicine as Coronil is enough to fight the deadly Covid-19. He also said that if needed one can consult a physician. If a Covid-19 patient is on the ventilator, then it's a different case altogether. However, such a situation will never occur as Coronil will eradicate the virus from one's body within 3 to 5 days, said Swami Ramdev.

Coronil a perfect shield for covid-19? India is currently battling the pandemic and the number of Covid-19 cases neared 4.5 lakh on Tuesday. Over 14,000 people have died due to the virus so far in this country. In this scenario, an ayurvedic medicine which claims to be a cure for this deadly virus is like a guardian from heaven but the effectiveness of Patanjali’s medicine on Covid-19 cure has not been approved by any independent medical body as of yet.

‘’ The reports of trials suggest that this drug has excluded serious patients on comorbid conditions and suffering from high severity of COVID-19. So, this drug has not been tested for most severe patients who are dealing with a life and death situation in COVID on ventilators. But similar exceptions have been adopted in various drug tests conducted on the same lines. For example- 50 healthy participants from age 18-60 had been selected by the Chemrar group for the drug avifavir or favipiravir or Glenmark’s FabiFlu. In fact, this drug called Avifavir touted as COVID care by pharmaceutical companies, has been granted only a temporary registration certificate by the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation. Glenmark is yet to show results of indian trials on Fabiflu. So realism says none of them are a cure. ‘’

The World Health Organization (WHO) had recently said that while several drug trials are ongoing, there is currently no proof that any drug can cure or prevent Covid-19. The same WHO once said that humans cannot transmit Coronavirus and tried to ban HCQ trials on fake data from LANCET.

Therefore, Coronil kit is yet to be approved by the Indian government or any health department as a definitive cure for covid-19 and the Ministry of Ayush has asked Patanjali to stop the advertisement of the Coronil, unless authenticating the same with proper procedure.

How did Baba Ramdev react to the AYUSH Ministry and government’s decision?

The AYUSH Ministry asked Patanjali to provide details of its 'Coronil', anti-COVID tablets and stop advertising or publicizing claims of treatment till the issue is duly examined. Yoga guru Baba Ramdev said his company is not doing any publicity or advertising and has just declared the result of the clinical trials of their products.

Baba Ramdev further said that people should be proud that Ayurveda has shown promising results against COVID-19 even as the rest of the world races to develop a vaccine.

"We should be proud of the fact that the work that allopathy, America, WHO, or any advanced countries couldn't do, Ayurveda has done it. We have responded to the Ayush Ministry's order and don't want to have any tensions. We are doing our job with full scientific evidence and have sent all relevant documents to the government. I think, soon the controversy will end," said Ramdev.
