Coronil certification: WHO says not reviewed, Patanjali clarifies

Feb 22, 2021 07:12 IST

Coronil, developed by yoga guru Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurved has run into a controversy over claims of certification.

Coronil claimed to boost immunity against COVID-19. Further, it claimed it holds a certificate of pharmaceutical product (CoPP) and is recognised by the World Health Organisation's Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). The WHO has however clarified in a tweet that it has not reviewed or certified any traditional medicine to treat or prevent COVID-19. ‘We want to clarify to avoid confusion that our WHO GMP compliant COPP certificate to Coronil is issued by DCGI, Government of India. It is clear that WHO do not approve or disapprove any drugs’, Patanjali Ayurved managing director Acharya Balkrishna tweeted.
