Maharashtra state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said that Patanjali’s 'Coronil', which is meant for COVID-19 treatment, will not be allowed in Maharashtra without certification from a reputable health authority.

Indian Medical Association (IMA) registered its disapproval of Patanjali for falsely claiming the World Health Organization (WHO) had certified Coronil for safe use.

Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan faces scrutiny for attending its launch event. 

The IMA statement criticized the Union Health Ministry’s presence at the Coronil launch event for false fabrication. 

IMA will also write to the National Medical Commission seeking cognizance of the blatant disrespect to the code of conduct put down by the Medical Council of India.
