Prince Charles's Office Refutes Indian Minister Ayurveda Link To Covid-19
NEW DELHI: Prince carlos , who came out of self-isolation to remotely open the UK National Health Service's first makeshift field hospital here on Friday, recovered from his Covid-19 symptoms on the advice of the NHS, his office said Saturday.
They contested reports from India that the Prince of Wales' recovery after testing positive last week had a link to Ayurvedic cure and homeopathy at a resort in South India.
Union Minister of State for AYUSH Shripad Naik claimed earlier this week that Dr Isaac Mathai, who runs the Soukya Ayurveda Resort in Bengaluru, told him that his treatment of " Prince carlos through Ayurveda and homeopathy has been successful".
This information is incorrect. The Prince of Wales followed NHS medical advice in the UK and nothing more, a spokesman for Clarence House said.
Charles, 71, has been a vocal advocate for Ayurveda over the years and joined Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to the UK in April 2018 at the London Science Museum for the launch of a new Ayurvedic Center of Excellence, aimed at creating such a global network for evidence-based research on yoga and Ayurveda.
You may know Soukya because of his real connections (Camilla and Charles love it here) and his high-profile VIP clients. We know it as a very serious health sanctuary offering the best in Ayurveda healing: a bolthole to cure everything founded by esteemed Dr. Isaac Mathai, notes the website of the Soukya resort in Bangalore, which is reportedly frequented by the heir to the British throne.
However, Naik's claim that the complex had a direct link to the royalty recovery from coronavirus symptoms this week has been dismissed.
Meanwhile, royalty continues to work from home in Scotland and praised the hard work of NHS staff when it opened the new 4,000-bed NHS Nightingale Hospital created on the site of the ExCel conference center in London to increase the capacity of the health service in its fight against the pandemic.
I can only offer my special thoughts and prayers to all those who will receive care within him and hope that it will not be long before this terrible disease has left our land, said Charles, while driving the first virtual plaque. unveiling in British real history via the video link.
Earlier this week, after his seven-day self-isolation period ended on Monday, he recorded a message from his desk at his Birkhall home on Queen Elizabeth II's Balmoral estate in Scotland .
He said: Having recently gone through the process of contracting this coronavirus, fortunately with relatively mild symptoms, I now find myself on the other side of the disease, but still in a state of no lesser social distance and general isolation.
None of us can say when it will end, but it will end. Until it does, let's try to live with hope and, with faith in ourselves and in others, we hope for better times to come.
The royal was not bedridden with the virus while continuing to work from home through his illness.
His wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, had tested negative for the virus at the same time, but remains in separate self-isolation within the same Scottish estate until early next week, according to government directions for 14 days.
