The government of Madagascar has had open talks with South Africa to assist them in testing their coronavirus herbal medicine, Covid-Organics. And report reaching us is that South Africa seems pensive about it. In the meantime, the president of Madagascar, Andry Rajeolina is making promotion on this tea infusion based on the Artemisia plant. Thereby claiming that the tonic has already cured nearly 150 people in Madagascar. And therefore praising its benefits and efficiency in treating the coronavirus. Moreover, schools in Madagascar will re-open soon enough and students are to take the herbal medicine.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation says it has yet to receive any data on using artemisia against the coronavirus. And has already warned people on using untested covid vaccines in a recent address. Thus to the point that if it will allow such vaccines to stand in market, then it has to go through critical clinical tests.

The President of South Africa has agreed to assist

“I actually did get a call from the government of Madagascar, they did ask us, they would like to be assisted in the process of trying to validate, try to help investigate the scientific basis on which such a drug could be used,” – Zweli Mkhize, South Africa’s health minister told journalists this week.

Prior to this, President Rajeolina had been in touch with other leaders on the African continent to encourage them to demand for the branded Covid-Organics products. Hence, in his best interest, the medicine could help in fighting the Covid-19 global pandemic.

“I had a call with the foreign affairs of Madagascar and there had been a call from the president and we then said our scientific research institutions will be willing to support an analysis,” said Mkhize. Consequently, this has made a lot of researchers in South Africa to take keen interest in getting their hands on the Malagasy artemisia tonic.

A possible cure in the making

“I would love to know what’s in it, a list of ingredients, so i can test it,” said Van der Kooy, an expert in pharmaceutical sciences at North-West University in South Africa. “That’s why I’m quite keen to help our minister to do the analysis because that’s the first thing i’ll do.”

Van der Kooy, who works at the University’s Pharmacen centre, has conducted research into artemisia’s effectiveness against HIV. And research has also shown that the plant already has strong credentials in treating malaria and potentially against SARS, a type of coronavirus.

Additionally, there could be a serious catastrophe on the face of the African continent owning to the pandemic. Stating that nearly 190,000 people could die from the coronavirus. And as many as 44 million could become infected – WHO said on Thursday.
