Ghana will not accept Madagascar’s Covid-19 cure and this is why

Madagascar has been in the news couple of weeks now for touting a herbal medicine product it says can cure the novel COVID-19.

So far, most African countries like Guinea-Bissau, Congo, and Tanzania have all taken delivery of the product.

But Ghana will not accept or try this medicine.

Ghana’s Food and Drug Authority (FDA) has hinted that it will not allow the use of Madagascar’s purported COVID-19 remedy in the country because it hasn’t been scientifically proven by any medical experts.

Chief Executive Officer of FDA, Mimi Delese Darko, says that Ghana needs more evidence from medical experts before accepting the product as COVID-19 cure.

“…Yes, we’ve read about it but what we also look out for is evidence so you cannot just put a drug or a herbal product on the market without evidence and say it treats a disease. So far as we’ve seen, it was tested in about 20 people over 3 weeks and come out with the claim of cure. There is no published study and what we would say is that we will need more evidence,” said Mimi delese Darko

However, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, has said that Ghana is ready to make an assessment on ‘COVID-Organics’- the purported COVID-19 cure from Madagascar.

Madagascar President, Andry Rajoelina has been promoting the plant-based tonic, COVID-Organics as South Africa promise to assist them in a scientific analysis.

  1. What is the definition of ‘scientifically tested’?? and who is the competent authority to carry that test?? Why is it that the Ghana CDC cannot send it’s own scientist to Madagascar to conduct a test with Ghana samples ??? What is hard about that?? The Ghana CDC seem poised to support a certain vaccine, it had defamed Ghana’s own COAFS, what is the relevance of the Ghana CDC???

  2. Hmmmm! That’s the challenge of the black race, always waiting for solutions from someone else. We are gradually being programmed towards a vaccine and only God knows what the vaccines will contain.
    COVID 19 is real anyway but the agenda behind it is scary. Follow Dr. Rashid Buttar on YouTube for more.
