The sale of Patanjali's Covid-19 medicine 'Coronil' will not be allowed in Maharashtra without proper certification, state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said on Tuesday.

Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said in a tweet, "Launching such a drug hurriedly and being endorsed by two senior Central Union Ministers is highly deplorable."

Earlier this week, Yoga Guru and Patanjali's founder Baba Ramdev had released a research paper on the "first evidence-based medicine for Covid-19". The research paper was made public in the presence of Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari.

"Selling of Coronil without proper certification from competent health organizations like WHO, IMA and others will not be allowed in Maharashtra," Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said.

Anil Deshmukh went on to add, "The IMA has questioned the said 'clinical trials' of Coronil and WHO refuted the false claims made by Patanjali Ayurveda for giving any certificate regarding its effectiveness for Covid-19 treatment."

Refuting Baba Ramdev's claims, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) had expressed shock at Patanjali's claim that the WHO has certified its Covid-19 medicine 'Coronil'. The IMA had also criticised the Union Health Minister for backing Patanjali.

"Being Health Minister of the country, how justified is it to release such falsely fabricated unscientific product to people of the whole country...can you clarify the time frame, timeline for the so-called clinical trial of this said anti-corona product?" the IMA said in a statement.
