Swami Ramdev announced earlier today that his ayurvedic coronavirus medicine combo -- Coronil and Swasari -- will be available across the country from today, after the differences with Ayush Ministry were sorted out. Swami Ramdev announced that Ayush Ministry has termed Coronil as a 'COVID management' drug.
He also said that this is a cheaper option to combat coronavirus, unlike the allopathic medicines which were 'much costlier' than the Ayurvedic option. He referred to FabiFlu drug which has been given a nod for use in India on COVID-19 patients.
So how do these drugs fare against each other?
