    Why he is quarantined himself?? First of all why did he tested himself in western way?? is there any test that will detect corona in AYUSH?
    The medicine that worked on Prince Charles not working on him?? May be it will work only with Prince and Princess.

    Anyway, ask him to take all those medicines that he claims cures Corona. Do not get him to admitted to the hospitals who treat the patient s with western medicine.

    Union Minister of State for AYUSH, and Defence, Shripad Naik had stated in a press conference on April 2, about how a special formula made of ayurvedic and homoeopathy practices had cured Coronavuirus infection in Prince Charles. Hope, now he uses same special formula for himself.

    Great. He should take the same Indian medicine which Prince Charles took & got cured. Mr. Naik should prove that that medicine works than going to AIIMS or Medanta. Good luck . Get well soon. This disease is not leaving the high & dry ones
