Nigeria President Buhari orders importation of Madagascar COVID-19 ‘cure’
Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the importation of the acclaimed coronavirus (COVID-19) ‘cure’ by Madagascar to Nigeria.
Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina launched the herbal tea, named COVID-Organics, last month, claiming that it has cured coronavirus patients.
The herbal tea produced by the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research (IMRA), was created from the Artemisia plant which has been used in malaria drugs.
When quizzed by a journalist about the report during the daily briefing of the PTF on Monday, May 11, 2020, the chairman of the task force, Boss Mustapha, said Nigeria’s allocation has been sent to Guinea-Bissau.
Despite the fact that Madagascar’s national clinical foundation has cautioned that no logical proof has been built up that COVID-Organics works, the legislature began distributing the home grown tea for nothing to residents.
News reports throughout the weekend that examples of the natural tea have been transported to other African nations, including Nigeria.
“I have received instructions from Mr President to make arrangements to freight it home with a clear instruction that I should subject it to the validation process, similar to what would happen to any other medicine or serum, or vaccine that is created internally,” he said.
