The country’s Institut Malgache de Recherches Appliquées (IMRA) produced the drink from the local plant, Artemisia annua or sweet wormwood.



It is a green leafy plant that emits a striking odor and is also used for malaria.

 

Although the president’s office did not respond to request for information supporting the claim that the product helps cure COVID-19, President Rajoelina however shared images of the product on his social media page.

 

He said the drink is effective against the virus as it strengthens the body’s immune system.

In a tweet, he said the drink will be distributed free of charge to the most vulnerable compatriots and sold at very low prices to others.



“All profits will be donated to IMRA to fund scientific research. Let us believe in our ability to cope and move forward”, he said.

 

There is no evidence to show it actually works against COVID-19, a respiratory disease that has claimed more than 165,000 lives and infected almost 2.5 million people across the world.

One thought on “Madagascar Launches Covid Organics(CVO) for Coronavirus

  1. I wish to commend the government of Madagascar for the courage to research and thus was able to find result oriented drugs for the dreaded covid19 virus.

    I however, urge other African countries to emulate the example of Madagascar in researching and providing drugs for the treatment of covid19 virus. I therefore, humbly request Madagascar to go into large production of the drugs for export purposes.

    Similarly, other nations of the world are hereby encouraged to borrow a leaf from Madagascar to find vaccines and drugs for covid19 virus.

    Finally, I wish to appeal to AU(African Union) to rally support to member nations or any of her citizens who strives to discover cure to the pandemic. W.H.O should also encourage research and efforts of government of African Nations in their quest to contribute to world development and progress.
