As researchers across the globe race to develop a vaccine to tackle the pandemic, Acharya Balkrishna, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Patanjali Ayurveda Limited, claimed that his company developed an Ayurveda medicine that has cured Covid-19 patients within a span of five to 14 days.

According to a report in news agency ANI, Balkrishna on Saturday said that a trial was conducted on hundreds of Covid-19 patients and that the medicine has yielded “100% favourable results”. However, there has been no statement regarding the claim by the Health Ministry or ICMR so far.

“We appointed a team of scientists after the Covid-19 outbreak. First, the simulation was done and compounds were identified which can fight the virus and stop its spread in the body. Then, we conducted a clinical case study on hundreds of positive patients and we have got 100 per cent favourable results,” Balkrishna said in Haridwar, according to ANI.
