There has been pressure mounted on government locally to contact the African country for the medication after Andry Rajoelina, Madagascar’s President launched it in April.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has, however, not endorsed it.

The BBC also reported that Madagascar’s national medical academy (Anamem) cast doubt on the efficacy of the Covid-Organics.

It said it had the potential to damage people’s health as its “scientific evidence had not been established”.

The tonic is produced from the artemisia plant – the source of an ingredient used in a malaria treatment – and other Malagasy plants.

Ghana’s Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) would be expected to study the drug and give a recommendation on it.
