New Delhi, May 14 : India is readying to begin testing four Ayurvedic drugs to treat Coronavirus patients next week. AYUSH minister Shripad Yesso Naik tweeted that "The @moayush & the @CSIR_IND are working together on validating four Ayush formulations against #COVID19Pandemic and the trials will start within one week.
These formulations will be tried as an add-on therapy and standard care for COVID-19 patients." "I am sure and quite hopeful that our traditional medicinal system will show the way to overcome this pandemic," the union Minister of State for AYUSH added.
This comes amid a spike in the number of Covid cases in India which rose to 78,003 on Thursday even as several countries are working to develop a preventive vaccine that would give protection to the public. (UNI)
