WHO Warns Against Using Madagascar’s ‘COVID-19 Cure’ Until Approved


The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned against using medicines that have not been approved for treating COVID-19.

The statement comes as the President of Madagascar is promoting a herbal tonic to treat COVID-19 patients.

“Africans deserve to use medicines tested to the same standards as people in the rest of the world.

“We must follow the evidence. There are no shortcuts,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom said a statement in March.

Meanwhile, several African countries, including Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea and Liberia, have already ordered Covid-Organics, which is produced from the artemisia plant – the source of an ingredient used in a malaria treatment – and other Malagasy plants.

Madagascan government announced that the country has recorded 151 cases of Covid-19 and no deaths.
