The Centre for Plant Medicine Research (CPMR) at Mampong Akuapem in the Eastern Region is collaborating with the Ministry of Health (MoH) and other stakeholders in research to find a herbal cure for COVID-19.
No cure has been found for the disease which has ravaged many countries since it came to the world’s attention in December last year. It is against this background that the CPMR is leveraging its expertise and knowledge in herbal medicine to discover a potential herbal cure for the disease.
The Executive Director of the CPMR, Dr Kofi Bobi Barimah, said his outfit is currently working on a number of herbal preparations it had received from the Ghana Federation of Traditional Medicine Practitioners Associations (GHAFTRAM), some of which had already been approved by the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA).
Dr Barimah stated that after undertaking a thorough research on the herbal preparations, the centre would forward those that received approval to the Ministry of Health for trials in line with safety protocols.
He said if the trials proved successful, Ghana would become one of the first countries in the world to have found a cure for COVID-19 using herbal medicine.
