Covid-19: Doctors snub Ramdev over Coronil claim | Watch

Senior members of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) lambasted Yoga Guru Ramdev over his current remarks on medical doctors who succumbed to Covid-19. In a viral video, the co-founder of Patanjali Yogapeeth will also be seen calling allopathy a “stupid science”.

Earlier on Monday, Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan had asked Ramdev to retract his comments. In a letter to Ramdev, the minister stated, “The statement disrespects the corona warriors and hurt the sentiments of the country.”

According to the Indian Medical Association (IMA), not less than 400 doctors have died in the second wave of Covid-19 infections. Delhi, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh accounted for many of those fatalities.

Doctors query credibility of Coronil

Secretary General of the IMA, Dr Jayesh Lele on Monday questioned the credibility of claims made by Ramdev in reference to Patanjali’s Coronil. “Ramdev does not have a WHO certification for Coronil,” stated the IMA functionary.

A member of Ramdev’s staff, Dr Anurag responded by saying, “We have conducted a double blinded study which has been published in renowned international journals. In the study, we also conducted in-vitro validation.”

The IMA functionary goes on to ask Ramdev why Covid-19 claimed so many lives if the items of Coronil he offered have been efficient.

“I am not saying remove the patient from ventilator support. I am saying we have proof that it cured people who were asymptomatic, mid or even those who were severe and had up to 50 per cent lung infection. We have the data,” says Ramdev.

Was studying WhatsApp message, says Ramdev

IMA functionary Dr Jayesh Lele stated a notice has been sent to Ramdev over his remarks on allopathy and medical doctors. FIRs have additionally been registered towards him, added Lele.

Criticising Ramdev’s remarks within the harshest phrases, the IMA functionary stated, “We have not said anything against ayurveda then why is he commenting against allopathy? People from across the world are laughing at his statements.”

In response, Ramdev claimed he was studying out a ‘WhatsApp message’ and the remarks weren’t his personal. “I have never denied the role of doctors,” he added.
