Speaking about the medicine, Ramdev said that all the parameters required for it have been followed. Many people raised questions on Coronil and looked at it with suspicion. Ramdev further said that the research on Coronil has been made possible by the efforts of scientists at Patanjali Research Institute to fight against coronavirus. This drug attempts to disrupt the functioning of the coronavirus after entering your body.

"Some people make medicines for business, but we have made medicines for treatment and goodwill," said Ramdev. He said, "I want the WHO to have its head office in India after some time."

In June last year, Ramdev had launched two medicines 'Coronil and Swasari' and allegedly claimed that the medicines cure coronavirus. However, later, Patanjali denied such claims.
