Jagan gives nod for Anandaiah medicine!

The YSR Congress party government in Andhra Pradesh led by chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday gave the green signal for the distribution of the “Nellore medicine” by Ayurvedic practitioner Bonige Anandaiah as a remedy for Covid-19.

The decision was announced by the chief minister’s office. However, the government has not given permission to the “eye drops” being given by Anandaiah since it was not tested by the experts committee of the state Ayush department.

The decision was taken following the report given by the Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences (CCRAS), of the Department of Ayush, Government of India. 

The reports on the eye drops are still awaited and it might take another two to three weeks.

According to the CMO sources, all the reports so far have revealed that there is no harm with the medicine being distributed by Anandaiah. 

However, no report has given any certification that the Nellore medicine is an effective cure for Covid-19.

The state government has also clarified that just because a person uses the Nellore medicine, he should not stop other Allopathic medicines being administered for Covid-19. 

“One has to continue the medicines prescribed by the doctors for the virus. Taking Anandaiah’s medicine is only optional,” the CMO release said.

The state government has also directed that no Covid-19 positive patients should come to Krishnapatnam to take the Anandaiah medicine, since it would result in spread of the virus.

However, the government would allow relatives of the Covid-19 patients to take the Anandaiah medicine on their behalf, in order to prevent spread of the infection. 

They should strictly follow Covid-19 protocols while obtaining the medicine, the government said.
