[May 12 AFP] Madagascar President Andry Rajoelina is directed to the country’s recommendation of herbal tea as a treatment for the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) on the 11th. He accused the West of looking down on traditional African herbs.

In an interview with French media such as the French television station France 24, Rajoelina said, «Would I be so skeptical if it was a European country, not Madagascar, that discovered this cure? I don’t think so. «» African scientists should not be underestimated, «he said.

«The problem is that (herbal tea) is of African origin, and they can’t recognize the fact that a country like Madagascar has found a prescription to save the world,» he said.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has repeatedly warned governments that no clinical trials have been conducted on herbal tea, which Rajoelina recommends as a treatment for new coronavirus infections.

In response to WHO concerns, Rajoelina said, «No country or organization will prevent us from moving forward,» and argued that the evidence of the effectiveness of herbal tea is «the recovery of our sick people.» ..

Called «Covid Organics,» this herbal tea is made from plants of the genus Artemisia and other native herbs that have been shown to have antimalarial properties.

Rajoelina claimed that the herbal tea would recover within 10 days if given to patients with coronavirus infection, and wanted to distribute it to West Africa and elsewhere. Distribution began last month and has already been received by Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Niger and Tanzania.

According to official statistics, 183 people were infected with the new coronavirus in Madagascar, 105 people were reported to have recovered, and no one died.

«Recovery patients were cured by administration of Covid Organics alone,» Rajoelina said, further calling the herbal tea an «improved traditional drug» and «clinical» in Madagascar, following WHO guidelines rather than clinical trials. He explained that he was «observing». (c) AFP


A word from the staff

Even without confirmation of the drug’s effectiveness, it can be psychologically supportive. If you believe in the effects of herbal tea and the people feel at ease, I think this medicine is meaningful. However, it is not good to be overconfident that drinking will definitely cure the illness.
