In an astonishing claim, Union Minister of State for Ayush, Shirpad Naik claimed that a Bengaluru based health resort was behind curing the COVID-19 disease of Prince Charles. Prince Charles was diagnosed with COVID-19 two weeks ago and has now been discharged after he tested negative.
Speaking to the press in his residence at Panaji, he made the claim that a Dr. Mathai who runs a health resort named SOUKYA in Bengaluru had cured Prince Charles of the novel coronavirus through Ayurveda and Homeopathy. The minister was seen reiterating the claim.
The minister said, “I will give you an example. I got a call from Dr. Mathai, who runs a Soukhya Ayurvedic resort in Bengaluru. Prince Charles was suffering from coronavirus. He (Mathai) called me and said my (treatment) was successful. Using Ayurveda and Homeopathy medicine, Prince Charles has been cured of coronavirus.”
According to its official website, SOUKYA is a 30-acre organic farm that helps people restore their body’s natural balance of mind, body, and spirit.
The website further says, “this first-of-its-kind healing sanctuary practices an integrative treatment approach that integrates different traditional, time-tested and natural systems of medicine like Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Yoga & Naturopathy and other Complementary Therapies.”
The Race to the Vaccine is On
Scientists and health experts across the globe are working relentlessly at a rapid speed to develop the cure and the vaccine for the novel coronavirus. While Israel, France, Japan, and America have already begun trials, the experts believe it will take at least 12 months and at most 18 months to arrive at a vaccine. There has been some evidence of anti-Malaria drug showing signs of curing the COVID-19 but Dr. Anthony Fauci clarified that these are merely anecdotal evidence that cannot be relied on.
The Union Minister Naik further said that a team of experts will be studying on the alternate medicine used by Dr. Mathai in the coming week.
While India took 8 weeks to reach the first 1,000 cases, it has only taken 4 days to reach to the next thousand. The largest spike was witnessed in the state of Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra as Kerala’s graph steadies. The death toll in India has crossed 50. The largest cluster discovered as of now is the Tablighi Jamaat Congregation that took place between March 13 and 15.
