After the alleged claim about the efficiency of the herbal remedy for COVID-19 by Madagascar, the African Union has agreed to open discussions regarding the same.
Madagascar has launched ‘CovidOrganics’ to the market to fight the COVID-19 pandemic after conducting internal tests on the herbal remedy that has been also advocated by President Andry Rajoelina.
President Andry Rajoelina iterating the efficiency and safety of the herbal solution has held talks with various other African leaders in the continent via a teleconference meeting on April 29, to take up the remedy as an aid to the fight against COVID-19.
With President Andry Rajoelina championing the herbal medicine, Comoros, the Republic of Congo and Guinea Bissau have expressed a willingness to acquire the medicine.
The African Union said, “Once furnished with the details, the Union, through the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), will review the scientific data gathered so far on the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 Organics. This review will be based on global technical and ethical norms to garner the necessary scientific evidence regarding the performance of the tonic.”
