The Ministry of Ayush has offered to set up a Covid related window in Press Club Of India premises in New Delhi. One experienced Ayurvedic doctor will be visiting PCI every Saturday for two hours from 2 pm to 4 pm, to not only distribute AYUSH-64 (the medicine that has been included in the national Covid management Protocol and is being distributed free of cost throughout the country) but also help with general Ayush based consultation.
AYUSH 64 is found efficacious in the management/treatment of Asymptomatic and Mild to Moderate Covid-19 infection. All PCI members along with their family members, relatives and friends can avail this facility. If someone is Covid-19 positive and is in home isolation, then any relative/representative can visit PCI to avail a full dose of AYUSH-64 for 20 days free of cost. The visiting doctor will explain in detail the protocol of taking the medicines.
