Ayurvedic products giant Patanjali by Yoga guru Swami Ramdev recently launched a drug named Coronil and claimed that the medicine treats Covid-19 caused by the novel coronavirus. Baba Ramdev further claimed that the product, which was researched by a joint team of Patanjali Research Institute (PRI) and Jaipur’s National Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS), has a success rate of 100 per cent.
However, to his dismay, the AYUSH ministry stopped yoga guru Ramdev’s firm from advertising or selling Coronil and claiming that it could help COVID-19. It further asked Patanjali to furnish proof of its claims. What’s more? The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said they were not involved or aware of the trials carried out by Patanjali.
Soon after, the name of the product trended on social media and the netizens couldn’t help but come up with savage memes and jokes. Apart from that, people also expressed their worries how they are afraid to purchase the drug because its efficacy could not be verified.
While we await Patanjali’s reaction to the ministry statements, we bring you the best memes on social media:
