new Delhi: According to yoga guru Ramdev, Patanjali Ayurved is getting a demand of 10 lakh packets every day for coronil, a controversial drug that enhances the resistance of Kovid-19. Ramdev said on Wednesday that this Haridwar-based company is struggling to meet the demand, as it is currently able to supply only one lakh packets every day.

Ramdev was addressing a program called ‘Atma Dependent Bharat – Vocal for Local’ organized by industry body Assochain through video conference. Earlier in June, Ramdev claimed that coronil covid-19 can cure patients.
However, the Ministry of AYUSH immediately banned the sale and later the Union Ministry said that Patanjali can only sell this product as an anti-inflammatory drug and cannot be sold as a treatment for Kovid-19.
“We have made our cow’s ghee an annual brand of Rs 1,300-1,400 crore,” he said. The estimated turnover of the Patanjali group is around Rs 10,500 crore.
