The efficacy of the COVID-19 Organics from Madagascar is being questioned after the country imposed a fresh lockdown due to the rise in cases of infection.
Madagascar on Sunday imposed a fresh lockdown on its capital, Antananarivo following a new surge in cases. This is coming two months after restrictions were eased in the island country.
According to Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District at the Senate, “The re-imposition of lockdown by the Madagascan Government in the capital city as a result of surge in infection raises questions on the efficacy of their remedy.
“However, it’s right to revert to measures that would contain the second wave of the spread,” Shehu Sani tweeted.
Madagascar had sent the herbal drink to Nigeria and other African country to help combat the virus and President Muhammadu Buhari received the concoction which had since been placed under test.
Just last week, the Nigerian government said the herbal remedy will be subjected to further research despite being proven to be a cure for only malaria.
