6 Comments

Madagascar President Andry Rajoelina on Monday batted away criticism for promoting a homegrown “remedy” for COVID – 19, charging that the West has a condescending attitude toward traditional African medicine .

“ If it wasn ’ t Madagascar , and if it was a European country that had actually discovered this remedy, would there be so much doubt? I don’ t think so , ” he told French media in an interview.

The World Health Organization has repeatedly warned that the COVID – Organics infusion , which Rajoelina has touted as a remedy against the deadly coronavirus , has not been clinically tested .

The drink is derived from artemisia – a plant with proven anti – malarial properties – and other indigenous herbs.

“ African scientists… should not be underestimated, ” he told
France 24 and Radio France
International (RFI ).

“ I think the problem is that (the drink) comes from Africa and they can ’ t admit … that a country like Madagascar … has come up with this formula to save the world , ” said Rajoelina , who claims the infusion cures patients within 10 days .

Already Equatorial Guinea , Guinea – Bissau , Niger and Tanzania have taken delivery of consignments of the potion , which was launched last month.

“ No country or organisation will keep us from going forward , ” Rajoelina said in response to the WHO ’ s concerns .

He said proof of the tonic ’ s efficacy was in “ the healing of our sick ”.

Madagascar has officially reported 183 coronavirus infections and 105 recoveries , with no deaths .

“ The patients who were cured were cured through the administration of Covid -Organics alone, ” the president said .

He referred to the remedy as “ an improved traditional medicine ” , adding that Madagascar was not conducting clinical trials but “ clinical observations ” in accordance with WHO guidelines .
