Baba Ramdev’s Coronil necessarily may not boost your immunity but this cryptic substance from Patanjali Ayurved has bolstered the financial health of many individuals. Several individuals are blindly ready to gulp down any mixture to prevent getting affected by Covid-19.
With the sharp rise in Covid-19 cases across Telangana, people are willingly paying hefty amounts than the original cost of Coronil, including up to Rs 1,800 for a kit that originally costs at Rs 545.
On Tuesday, the Hyderabad police raided a gang that was selling COVID-19 medicines at peaking amounts. Deccan Chronicle got hold of buyers to speak about about Patanjali products in Hyderabad.
A leading pearl dealer, a resort on the outskirts of Hyderabad and some garment dealers are engaged in selling of Patanjali product in the black market, including door delivery services and drawing in huge profits in in the process.
Ironically, during a random search, it was established that, due to bulk buying, several Patanjali dealers in the twin cities had no stock of Coronil.
”I bought five Coronil kits for Rs 1,500 each. The demand is high as hundreds of families from our community have been affected,” one businessman revealed.
Meanwhile, another businessman and another buyer of the kit for Rs 1,200, said before being hospitalised, many of his relatives tried the product.
”Our people are dying and the panic is such that people are willing to try anything to boost immunity. The price does not matter,” he said.
