Delhi Medical Association Slams Doctors' Body For Criticising Health Minister Harsh Vardhan Over Coronil Event
The Delhi Medical Association on Tuesday took exception to the critical statement issued by the IMA on the launch of Patanjali's Coronil tablet in the presence of Union minister Harsh Vardhan.
The Indian Medical Association (IMA) on Monday had expressed shock over the "blatant lie of WHO certification" for Patanjali's Coronil tablet, which the company claims is an evidence-based medicine to fight COVID-19, and demanded an explanation from Union Health Minister Vardhan in whose presence the medicine was launched.
In a statement issued on Monday, the IMA said, "Being Health Minister of the country, how justified is it to release such falsely fabricated unscientific product to people of the whole country...can you clarify the time frame, time line for the so-called clinical trial of this said anti-corona product?"
"The country needs an explanation from the minister. The Indian Medical Association will also write to National Medical Commission for seeking suo moto explanation for his blatant disrespect to the code of conduct of Medical Council of India," the IMA had said.
