The long-awaitied ayurvedic cure for COVID-19 has been launched by renowned Yoga Guru, Baba Ramdev with a claimed 100 percent recovery rate in a span of 3 to 7 days.
Named Coronil, the ayurvedic medicine has been formulated using Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia) and Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum).
Coronil is the result of the work put in by 500 scientists of Patanjali Research Institute and scientists of Jaipur-based National Institute of Medical Science. It is expected to be available for consumers by the end of June, 2020.
