Director General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, disclosed this at a press conference in Accra.

Dr Aboagye said a specified quantity of the drugs may be made available to the country but Ghana’s Food and Drugs Authority will have to do some assessment as a precondition of its approval for usage on patients.

 

 

“I will not be able to say whether it will be used or not,” Dr Kuma-Aboagye said.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has dismissed the Madagascar president’s claims that a herbal tonic produced within the country could cure patients of Covid-19.

However, 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.
