While many experts are considering Haridwar’s Kumbh Mela as a superspreader of coronavirus, Yoga guru Ramdev has said that no person in Patanjali has the infection. He refused reports by a segment of media of COVID cases inside the main campus of Patanjali Yogpeeth. Swami Ramdev added that new patients who came to the inpatient department and new students who came to Acharyakulam underwent COVID-19 testing and 14 visitors tested positive. He said those patients were not permitted inside the research institution’s main campus.
T-1-पतंजलि में एकभी व्यक्ति कोरोना संक्रमित नहीं है.
जो IPD में नए रोगी व आचार्यकुलम में नए विद्यार्थी प्रवेश के लिए आए, उनका हमने कोविड प्रोटोकोल की SOP के तहत टेस्ट करवाया। उसमें से भी आगंतुक मात्र 14 व्यक्ति पॉजिटिव थे, जिनको हमने मुख्य परिसर में प्रवेश की अनुमति नही दी।

We Get Entrants Tested For COVID-19 By Following Protocols: Swami Ramdev
Taking to Twitter, Swami Ramdev said, “No person is infected with coronavirus in Patanjali. Those new patients who came to IPD and new students who came for admission to Acharyakulam, we got them tested under the SOP of COVID protocol. Only 14 visitors were positive and they were not allowed inside the main campus. Apart from this, all reports are rumours and lies. I am regularly doing live programmes of yoga and health from 5 to 10 am daily.”
Swami Refutes Media Reports Of Corona In The Campus
Recently, a section of the media reported that 83 inside the Patanjali main campus tested positive for the virus. Addressing the media, Swami Ramdev said, “No coronavirus cases are there in the Yogagram, Patanjali Yogpeeth, Acharyakulam or training centres. In Acharyakulam, every year, 200-250 new admissions take place. Every day, nearly 50 patients come to Patanjali Yogpeeth. 50-100 patients come to Yogagram. Before they come, corona test is done for them. Some patients who had to take admission to Acharyakulam tested positive. We quarantined them. We then provided admission to those who could be given admission. Those who were to be sent back, we sent them back to their homes. It is a rumour that Patanjali has corona cases.”

Meanwhile, the COVID infection is spreading like wildfire now. Due to the alarming rise in cases, hospitals are running out of beds and oxygen supply. So, avoid stepping out unless it is absolutely necessary. Stay home, stay safe.
