“I have no opinion on this Madagascan medicine for Coronavirus, except it keeps going viral as a cure. What I want to see is scientific opinion on it after trials,” he tweeted.

Last month, Madagascan President Andry Rajoelina publicly endorsed and launched a herbal remedy, COVID-Organics,  that he stated prevents and cures the novel coronavirus disease.

 

 

 

 

Since then, many African countries have imported the herbal concoction even though no definite scientific opinion has been given as proof that the remedy can treat and cure the disease.

According to the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research, makers of the medicine, the herbal medicine is made from artemisia, a plant with proven efficacy against malaria, and other indigenous herbs.

“The plant was first imported into the island nation in the 1970s from China to treat malaria.

It is now marketed in bottles as a herbal tea, while Rajoelina has said clinical trials are under way in Madagascar to produce a form that can be injected into the body,” according to a report by Aljazeera.

The medicine reportedly cures the disease in seven days
