Gambia receives Madagascar’s controversial Covid Organic

Banjul, Gambia (PANA)  - The government of The Gambia Tuesday accepted to take a donation of Madagascar’s controversial Covid Organics, a herbal cure for the coronavirus (COVID-19) produced in Madagascar.

However, the World Health Organisation has warned all nations against the use of the medication because it has not yet been scientifically proven, though the producer claims it is capable of curing the pandemic.

But dozens of countries around the world, especially African countries, have been accepting the medication.

African nations, including Senegal, have been reaching out to the East African Island nation after the cure reportedly proved effective in spite of the WHO advice against its use.

A statement from The Gambia State House Tuesday said: “The public is hereby informed that The Gambia has received a consignment of three boxes of Covid Organics from the President of the Republic of Madagascar, H.E, Andry Rajoelina.

“The consignment is part of a gift to ECOWAS countries towards the fight against COVID-19. They have been delivered to the Ministry of Health,” the statement added.
