KanyiDaily recalls that last month, Madagascar officially launched a local herbal remedy claimed to prevent and cure the novel coronavirus.
The herbal drink, which is called ‘Covid-Organics’ or CVO, is derived from artemisia – a plant with proven efficacy in malaria treatment – and other indigenous herbs.
President Rajoelina said that the drink is effective against COVID-19 as it strengthens the body’s immune system, adding several people have been cured with the treatment.
A report by Tanzania Perspective quoted President Rajoelina as saying the World Health organisation (WHO) offered his country the sum of $20 million as bribe to poison the COVID-19 cure.
In the report, the President insisted that the herbal remedy called ‘COVID Organics’ made from Artemisia can cure COVID-19 patients within ten days.
President Rajoelina, who also appeared on France 24 News, said that the only reason the rest of the world had refused to take the herbal cure seriously and with respect was that it came from Africa. He said:
“I think the problem is that (the drink) comes from Africa and they can’t admit… that a country like Madagascar… has come up with this formula to save the world.
“If it wasn’t Madagascar, and if it was a European country that had actually discovered this remedy, would there be so much doubt? I don’t think so.
“What is the problem with Covid-Organics, really? He asked. Wondering if it could be that this product comes from Africa,” he added.
The President also wondered if it was not alright for a country like Madagascar, which is the 63rd poorest country in the world, to have come up with something that can help save the world.
He noted that if it was not Madagascar, but an European country that had actually discovered the Covid organic, there would not be so much doubt.
