Nigeria May Request Herbs From Madagascar for COVID-19 Treatment – Boss
The Secretary to the government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha has disclosed that Nigeria may ask Madagascar to send a plane load of “herbal solutions” for treatment of COVID-19.
Speaking during the daily briefing of the PTF on COVID-19, Mustapha noted that the government was not oblivious of what is happening in some countries.
The chairman of the task force said government would request that President Buhari allow them import a plane load for a trial.
He said, “I want to assure you that whatever is happening in the world, we are mindful of it and we are keeping tab. I was reading of the experiences in Madagascar– of why everybody is drinking some solutions that have been prepared.
This morning I was sharing with my wife, and I told her that probably I would request that Mr President to allow us import a plane load for a trial because we are all navigating an unchartered cause. Nobody has ever been on this road. So, every attempt to find solution that would bring succour to our people, be rest assured that this task force is very responsible and we would do everything to ensure that we get what will benefit our people and what will help them in the processes that we find ourselves today.”
President of Madagascar, Andry Rajolina had a week ago launched a herbal medicine believed to cure the novel coronavirus.
Branded COVID-organics, the medicine which contains artemisa, a plant used in treating malaria, was developed by the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research.
