Madagascar’s highly publicized Covid-19 herbal cure popularly known as ‘Covid Organics’ will reach the shores of Ghana, the Ghana Health Service has announced.
The GHS says Madagascar has made an offer to Ghana and the FDA will have to assess the drug and later determine whether it will be circulated for use.
Director General of the Ghana Health Service Dr. Kuma-Aboagye, Madagascar has made an offer to Ghana concerning the herbal solution but the FDA will have to assess the product.
Speaking at a Ministry of Information press briefing on Covid-19 on Thursday, Dr. Kuma-Aboagye said “I believe that a quantity might be made available to the country and we will ensure collaboration with FDA.They have to do some assessment and then we take it from there.”
“So, I will not be able to say whether it will be used or not. But I think they have made an offer and we can take a look at it,” he noted.
Meanwhile, the WHO has dismissed the Madagascar president’s claims that the herbal tonic produced within the country can cure patients of COVID-19.
Other African countries such as Tanzania and Guinea-Bissau have made plans to import the tonic, which contains the artemisia plant, which is normally used to treat malaria.
