Yoga Guru Ramdev has been making the headlines for calling allopathy ‘stupid science’. However, Ramdev said he will take the vaccine against COVID-19. Now, this comes as his attempt to bury the hatchet with Indian Medical Association.
Not only this, he now has become an advocate for COVID-19 Vaccination and is asking everyone to get the vaccine. Ramdev also praised PM Narendra Modi’s announcement of a free, centralized Covid-19 vaccination drive which will begin on June 21, which is also the International Yoga Day.
His current statements mark a complete shift from his earlier statement where he questioned that if the vaccines were protecting one from COVID-19 then why did thousands of doctors contract the infection and died even after getting vaccinated.
And earlier, he said he has the dual cover of Yoga and Ayurveda and has not taken the vaccination yet.

In a video that went viral earlier, he said, “It is shocking that Remdesvir failed, steroids failed and now plasma therapy has also been banned.”
He also said, “The medicines doctors are giving patients for getting the fever down such as Fabiflu is not doing any good to them.”
He also expressed, “we have lost lakhs of people due to allopathic medicines and not due to shortage of oxygen.”
