The much-hyped Ayurvedic practitioner Borige Anandaiahâ€™s medicine for Covid-19 patients in Andhra Pradesh will be started from Monday, as announced earlier. Arrangements are underway to prepare the medicine.
The required herbs to prepare the miracle medicine are being shifted to Krishnapatnam from the Venkatachalam forest area. As the medicine will be made in bulk quantity, the herbs are being shifted in tractors.
Media reports claimed that Neem leaves, Mango leaves, Jamun leaves, and Calotropis flowers were shifted from the forest area to the Krishnapatnam area, where the medicine is being prepared.
Besides the herbs, other natural ingredients like turmeric, cumin, nutmeg, pepper, honey, and other ingredients will also be used to prepare the medicine.
Earlier, the government had sent the samples of the medicine to Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa-Rigpa, and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) Ministry and ICMR. The reports said the medicine is not harmful.
The state government said the same while appearing for a hearing in the Andhra Pradesh High Court and said, it has no objections to the medicine and asked 1-3 months time to stock up and supply the medicine.
Section 144 has been in place in Krishnapatnam already. Except for the locals, others are not being allowed to enter the area. People, who are taking part in the medicine preparation are provided with ID cards.
