Watch: Ramdev launches Covid-19 medicine Coronil, Harsh Vardhan attends event

Yoga Guru Ramdev launched Patanjali's ‘Coronil’ to cure Covid-19 on Friday. Patanjali Ayurved said Coronil has got Ayush Ministry’s certification as per WHO scheme. The company claimed that it is the first evidence-based medicine to fight Covid-19. Ramdev also released research paper to back Patanjali's solutions to Covid-19. The ayurvedic medicine against coronavirus was launched at an event in New Delhi. The event was presided by Union Ministers Harsh Vardhan and Nitin Gadkari. Patanjali had earlier introduced Ayurveda-based Coronil on June 23 last year. The Haridwar-based firm, however, had to face criticism as it lacked scientific evidence. The Ayush Ministry, back then, had indicated it as 'Immuno-booster' only. Coronil is developed by Baba Ramdev's Patanjali Research Institute. It had started work for an Ayurvedic remedy for Covid-19 in January, 2020.

Top medical journal calls for three urgent steps against COVID-19 [Video]

Top medical journal calls for three urgent steps against COVID-19

In an analysis, the Lancet COVID-19 Commission has called for three urgent actions in the COVID-19 response. "First, all regions with high rates of new COVID-19 cases, including the USA and the European Union (EU), should intensify measures to minimise community transmission and deploy COVID-19 vaccines rapidly," read the Lancet medical journal in its latest publication. Second, governments should urgently and fully fund WHO and the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, including COVAX. Third, the G20 countries should empower the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and multilateral development banks to increase the scale of financing and debt relief. Success on all three priorities--containment of transmission, rapid vaccination, and emergency finance--will require improved global cooperation, it said. New lineages are increasing transmission of infection and raising risks in regions that have been less affected by COVID-19, including in sub-Saharan Africa. Additionally, acquired immunity from earlier COVID-19 infections might be less protective against reinfection with some of the new SARS-CoV-2 variants. Mutant lineages might also reduce the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and require adapted vaccines or boosters."* The medical journal also pointed out that at least half of the world's population lacks access to essential health services.
