Madagascar has commenced the production of the newly discovered coronavirus herbal medicine on a large scale to help meet the emerging demand.
The President of Madagascar, President Andry Rajoelina officially announced the discovery this traditional remedy for the deadly coronavirus which has defied almost every treatment and killed many people.
According to the President and medical experts, the local medicine which has been named Covid-Organics [ C.V.O ] was administered to some people who had the virus and the result came out positive.
He further added that, this herbal tea which was developed by the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research (IMRA), gives results within a period of seven days.
Even though the World Health Organization refused to recognize or test the efficacy of this herbal medicine for general usage, the country has kick started production on large scale.
According to the IMRA health authorities, Covid-Organics was derived from artemisia, a plant with proven efficacy in malaria treatment and other indigenous herbs.
The country has so far received solidarity and congratulatory messages from some African heads of state ranging from Macky Sall, President of Senegal who placed the first-ever order as well and Félix Tshisekedi, President of Democratic Republic of Congo. We expect more support from Africans who must also conduct their independent research on the efficacy and purchase it to save lives.
It is time to grab the reality of being Africans in this pandemic.
