The Ministry of AYUSH has said that the alleged drug, drug and miracle treatment of Patanjali (Objectionable Advertisement) Act, 1954 is regulated.
On the occasion of the launch of the medicine, Patanjali’s Managing Director Acharya Balakrishna had claimed that this drug would be able to treat patients suffering from corona within 3-14 days.
