Coronil Kit by Baba Ramdev for Coronovirus wouldn’t work, Here’s why?
Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali recently announced the release of a cure for Coronavirus. Baba Ramdev named this coronavirus kit Coronil. He made claims that it has a 100% recovery rate. But are these claims valid?
Coronavirus has put a halt on lives worldwide. Every research department is working day and night to bring the Covid-19 cure or vaccine. In this Coronavirus pandemic, Baba Ramdev Corona’s kit seemed like that silver lining of hope to many. Even though I am someone who believes in Ayurveda and ancient science, I hate to break it to you that Baba Ramdev Patanjali’s Coronil would certainly not work.
Read what Dr. Vibhor Upadhyay (DM NEUROLOGY, AIIMS, New Delhi) has to say about Baba Ramdev’s Coronil. He has been practicing in the field of medicine for the last seven years.
The Sample size of the trial was conducted was too small.
Dr. Vibhor believes that for a drug trial to classify as productive and successful, it should have at least thousands of people, on whom the trials are conducted, where Baba Ramdev fails miserably with a sample size of just 120 patients.
Dr. Vibhor Upadhyay says, “With such low sample sizes pilot study in 120 cases it’s just not possible to prove that coronil(Patanjali product) is superior to placebo. When there are more than 10k cases per day, why limit the studies to such a small sample size.
Baba Ramdev’s coronil trial’s loose command over critical cases
Coronavirus has a low mortality rate; in some cases, it can be cured easily. But the real issue lies with critical patients. Patients who are old, suffering from disease, or have a deficient immune system or suffering from auto-immune diseases.
Dr. Vibhor says, “Our main concern in COVID-19 patients is for those 10 to 15 % who are becoming seriously ill out of which 5% getting critical. The mortality rate has ranged between 2.5 to 2.9% from the very beginning of the pandemic in our country. So without being tested this coronil compound in these patients, it was tested in asymptomatic or mildly affected patients who could have recovered on their own.”
Baba Ramdev’s coronil inception failure
Ayush health ministry has made it clear that it didn’t give any permission to Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali to form any cure for Coronavirus. However, Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali got permission to develop an immunity booster. Looking at the sample size for Baba Ramdev Patanjali’s Coronil kit, I don’t think it even qualifies as an excellent immunity booster.
Dr. Vibhor says, “As majority 80 to 90%, patients recovers without any treatment and with their immune system.’
“Coronil kit was approved for testing as an immunity booster in the first place but falsely marketed as COVID-19 cure. But for being effective as immunity booster too, its study is not of standard level as minimal sample size and not including the comorbid or moderate to severely affected COVID-19 patients.”
Baba Ramdev Patanjali’s Coronil Kit is a sign of Baba Ramdev’s Irresponsibility.
Baba Ramdev Patanjali’s Coronil Kit will be available in the market for the public to buy and consume. But it was very lousy behavior on Baba Ramdev’s part to promote it as Covid-19 cure. Now, many people who blindly trust in Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali may consume the medicine and assume that they are cured and can’t catch the infection. Making it worse for them, their family, and society. Since it will make people fearless of Coronavirus, this may lead to them not following the protocols to prevent the infection. Thus, risking may live in the process.
