COVID-19: WHO Cautions Against Madagascar Over Herbal Remedy

Share This
The World Health Organization (WHO) has said there is no proof of a cure for Covid-19 after Madagascar’s president has launched a herbal coronavirus “cure”.


The country’s national medical academy (Anamem) has also cast doubt on the efficacy of Andry Rajoelina’s touted prevention and remedy.

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

The plant-based tonic is to be given free of charge to the most vulnerable.

Launched as Covid-Organics, it is produced from the artemisia plant – the source of an ingredient used in a malaria treatment – and other Malagasy plants.
