Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina on Friday launched a capsule version of herbal drink, Covid-organics which he proclaims as coronavirus cure.
Rajoelina announced at an inauguration ceremony hosted by local pharmaceutical company Pharmagalasy that the capsule is to serve as a substitute for individuals who struggle to ingest the infusion. “Covid-Organics” is derived from artemisia — a plant with proven anti-malarial properties — and other indigenous. The infusion’s effects has, however, not been scientifically tested. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned against its usage.
