Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Minister for Information

Ghana has taken delivery of Madagascar’s highly publicized COVID-19 herbal remedy.

This was disclosed by the Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, in a Facebook live Q&A session dubbed “#AskTheInfoMinistry on Assessing Government’s Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic.”

However, the Minister stated that the COVID-19 remedy is being tested and assessed for efficacy.

“We have received the Madagascar cure for Covid-19 and we are testing it for efficacy,” he said.

Madagascar’s COVID-19 Herbal Cure

Madagascar’s COVID-19 herbal remedy, named Covid-Organics was launched by Andry Rajoelina, the President of Madagascar in April 2020.

The herbal remedy is produced from the artemisia plant – the source of an ingredient used in a malaria treatment – and other Malagasy plants.

However, after the launch of the product, the World Health Organisation (WHO) stated that there is no proof for a COVID-19 cure.

Madagascar’s President, Andry Rajoelina in a recent interview with France 24 criticized the World Health Organisation for not endorsing its COVID-19 herbal cure.
