The African Union (AU) has disclosed that it is considering the necessary details about the Madagascar herbal remedy, regarding its ability to cure the Coronavirus.
AU in a statement published on its website said, “The African Union is in discussion with the Republic of Madagascar, through its embassy in Addis Ababa, with a view to obtain technical data regarding the safety and efficiency of a herbal remedy, recently announced by Madagascar for the reported prevention and treatment of COVID19.”
Madagascar’s President H.E. Andry Rajoelina, had sold the idea to his colleagues in a teleconference Meeting of the Bureau of the Assembly of AU Heads of State and Government with the Chairpersons of the AU Regional Economic Communities (RECs) on 29 April 2020, urging them that the herbal remedy was effective.
AU stated that as soon as it was done with its findings, it would make a decision.
“Once furnished with the details, the Union, through the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), will review the scientific data gathered so far on the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 Organics,” it said.
However, AU added that the review will be based on global technical and ethical norms “to garner the necessary scientific evidence regarding the performance of the tonic.”
