The Federal Government through the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD) has said that investigations have shown that, the herb claiming to cure coronavirus from Madagascar cannot really cure the virus.
The herb, called herbal tea, launched in April this year and the main ingredient is a plant from the Asian region.
After the herb was launched in April this year, Madagascar donated some of them to Nigeria through Guinea Bissau in May.
After President Buhari received the herbal tea from Guinea’s President, Umaro Sissoco Embalo, President Buhari gave an order that the drug is tested and verified before it can be used.
The Federal Government Agency, NIPRD, however, said on Sunday that the herbal tea has been analyzed scientifically and it is not as efficient as claimed.
According to the agency’s report, “Safety studies show that COVID ORGANICS (CVO) products do not change the normal physiology of the animals,”.
“CVO as a whole can be seen safe, based on the type used”
“CVO reduced the rate of cough with the maximum dose tested producing an effect equivalent to that produced by the centrally acting cough-suppressant, dihydrocodeine.
“To further place this product based on how effective it is in our respiratory tract, it will be important to find out its effect”
The Director-General of NIPRD, Obi Adigwe, has accused Madagascar of holding back useful information.
“The analysis we gave in our report is more detailed than anything that had come from their country. They are holding back important information on the product. If you check on the internet, the level of analysis we gave cannot be gotten”
Earlier, The World Health Organisation (WHO) sounded a grave warning to countries against using the product because “it has not been taken through tests to see its efficacy”.* BEST DEALS & OFFERS*
