The World Health Organization is to sign a confidentiality clause with Madagascar on the formulation of its ‘herbal cure’ for coronavirus.
Madagascar for some time now has been criticized by WHO because the nation was promoting the herbal remedy and distributing it to other African countries on their own accord.
Per WHO, the production and distribution of the herbal remedy (COVID-Organics) without scientific evidence can be detrimental to people.
Madagascar had said that the remedy which is product of artemisia plant was developed by the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research (Imra).
Madagascar’s President, Andry Rajoelina has already urged farmers in his country to grow more of the artemisia plant.
Clause of Confidentiality
The aforementioned President disclosed on Twitter on Wednesday that he had “successful exchange with Dr. Tedros (WHO chief) who commends Madagascar’s efforts in the fight against Covid19.”
Rajoelina also added that “WHO will sign a confidentiality clause on the formulation of the Covid-Organics and will support the clinical observations process in Africa.”
