We are performing controlled clinical trials only. In the next 4-5 days, evidence and data will be released by us,” Balkrishna said.

“Such vaccines aren’t liable to be promoted until approved,” says Ministry of AYUSH
The Ministry of AYUSH in coordination with the Indian government has nodded off against the herbal medicinal company. The fact that Patanjali could distribute a COVID-19 vaccine is to be checked off before it is made available to the general population.
Soon after the launch, the Indian organization has asked the brand to acquire and submit the details regarding the sample size, sites, hospitals where research study was conducted, and ethics panel clearance and provide them at the earliest.
“Facts of the claim and details of the stated scientific study are not known to the Ministry and complete details of the supposed medicines have been sought,” AYUSH said on Tuesday. Till now, no further information has been revealed upon the stoppage in the vaccine production/distribution.
