“If it was a European country that discovered this remedy, would there be so much doubt? Madagascan President lashes out on critics.
The president of Madagascar, Mr. Rajoelina said in an interview with French news channel, France 24 that, the newly discovered herbal remedy for COVID-19 is being treated unfairly because it was discovered in Africa.
Speaking to the host, Rajoelina said that, “If it was a European country that had actually discovered this remedy, would there be so much doubt? I don’t think so,”
He further added, “I think the problem is that (the drink) comes from Africa and they can’t admit… that a country like Madagascar …has come up with this formula to save the world.”
Since the discovery of this traditional medicine, the President has been a busy person from social media to several interviews, either to clarify issues or answer questions.
Although the world health organization is yet to approve the medicine, President Rajoelina has endorsed it in his country where it was discovered for consumption. So far, some COVID-19 patients have treated with the medicine according to the Madagascan authorities.
The World Health Organization issued a warning to the general public to desist from the use of unapproved medications for coronavirus. The American Centre For Disease Control equally ruled out the possibility of such medicine curing the virus. This was also followed by series of negative media reports concerning the medicine which obviously informed the President’s utterances.
African Union (AU) has however held discussions with Madagascar following public agitation and demanded scientific data on the safety and efficacy of the medicine, COVID-ORGANICS claimed to be a cure for COVID-19 for testing and further action.
