News coming in reveals that, South Africa declares their willingness to help Madagascar to scientifically test their newly discovered COVID-19 herbal medicine.
The South African Health Minister, Zweli Mkhize confirmed this after disclosing on twitter that, the Madagascan government is already in touch with them.
“We received a call from the government of Madagascar, which asked for help in scientific research… Our scientists would be able to assist in the research. We will only get involved in a scientific analysis of the herb,” the Minister said. This follows a release by the African Union demanding scientific data on the efficacy of the beverage for analysis by the Africa Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The final result will determine whether the medicine will be accepted globally.
Madagascar has been trending lately following the discovery of the herbal medicine for corona-virus. Although the medicine is yet to receive global approval by the World Health Organization, the country’s
President endorsed it for consumption.
As of now, the country recorded a total of 158 confirmed cases with zero death and 101 recoveries.
