He said that Patanjali never claimed that 'Coronil' can cure or control COVID-19 rather, claimed that the medicine is used in clinical controlled trial which cured corona patients. "We never told the medicine (Coronil) can cure or control corona, we said that we had made medicines and used them in clinical controlled trial which cured corona patients. There is no confusion in it," said Balkrishnam.
