Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said AYUSH sector has a long tradition of keeping the nation healthy and its importance has increased manifold in the ongoing efforts to tackle COVID-19.

Interacting with AYUSH sector practitioners via video conference, Mr Modi observed that AYUSH network is spread through the length and breadth of the country. He said it is imperative for them to utilize this network, while working according to WHO guidelines, to spread the message of good practices to control the spread of the virus. He praised the ongoing efforts of AYUSH Ministry in promoting #YogaAtHome to de-stress the mind and strengthen the body.


The Prime Minister emphasized the importance of countering and fact checking unsubstantiated claims of AYUSH having cure for the disease. He added that AYUSH scientists, ICMR, CSIR and other research organizations must come together for evidence based research. He said help from private doctors connected with AYUSH may be sought by the government if the need arises.


Mr Modi suggested that AYUSH medicine producers could utilize their resources towards producing essential items like sanitizers which are in high demand these days. He exhorted them to utilize the platform of telemedicine to reach out to the public and generate constant awareness to fight the pandemic. He also highlighted the importance of enforcing social distancing with full vigour to counter the spread of the pandemic.
