Antananarivo (AFP)

The president of Madagascar Andry Rajoelina has officially launched a local herbal remedy claimed to prevent and cure the novel coronavirus.

"Tests have been carried out -- two people have now been cured by this treatment," Rajoelina told ministers, diplomats and journalists at the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research (IMRA), which developed the beverage.

"This herbal tea gives results in seven days," he said.

Downing a dose, he said: "I will be the first to drink this today, in front of you, to show you that this product cures and does not kill."

The drink, which has been called Covid-Organics, is derived from artemisia -- a plant with proven efficacy in malaria treatment -- and other indigenous herbs, according to the IMRA.

But its safety and effectiveness have not been assessed internationally, nor has any data from trials been published in peer-reviewed studies. Mainstream scientists have warned of the potential risk from untested herbal brews.

Rajoelina brushed aside any such reservations and said the concoction would be offered to schoolchildren, as it was his duty was to "protect the Malagasy people".

"Covid-Organics will be used as prophylaxis, that is for prevention, but clinical observations have shown a trend towards its effectiveness in curative treatment," said Dr. Charles Andrianjara, IMRA's director general.

The large Indian Ocean island has so far detected 121 cases and no fatality.

The pandemic has triggered a rush for herbal formulas, lemons and ginger in the belief that they can protect against the virus.

The World Health Organization (WHO), which has people to be vigilant about claimed cures for COVID-19, did not attend the event.

The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), referring to claims for herbal or tea remedies, says: "There is no scientific evidence that any of these alternative remedies can prevent or cure the illness caused by COVID-19. In fact, some of them may not be safe to consume."

Let's see how the international politics will play.
It will be very difficult for WHO to recognize and approve this break through. They will rather collect the formula behind the door and repackage it from a so called developed country.

Definitely a plant that contains quinine ...anybody that allows WHO kill him instead of going to take chloroquine quietly does so at his own peril

Even if it works the west won't approve it cos to them it's an insult for Africa to provide solution to world's problem. The solution must come from them.

Treated just two? If at least 100 persons were treated using the tea, it would have made more sense to the medical/scientific world.

I commend them. This viral ailment can be cured naturally depending on areas of diversity with what we've been hearing. No one should doubt this as it is reality, I've heard from reliable source who recovered from severe covid-19 infection in natural way. We'll win war against this pandemic

I believe they wanted to break the news without delay and continue with the treatment sampling. They know all hands are on desk around the world working on the same project and didn't want to miss the chance of being the first with the solution. Delay is dangerous!! wink wink

many pharmaceutical/research agencies have gone past the stage that the madagascan govt is announcing. We have heard about cases where thousands of people are being used to test the effectiveness of their drugs but none of these companies are loud like the madagascan govt. It is just that normal thing with African leaders, they always want to be seen as doing things even when they are doing little or nothing.

So you are speaking as a representative from these companies? Please shut it. Concentrate on staying alive until the cure comes!

why won't somebody not be scared when u hear of a single drug curing all ailments known and unknown to man, spiritual and non-spiritual irrespective of age. Even the most advanced science can't explain the possibility of what these herbalists claim.

My brother, it is certain that you didn't read thru the write up.

These guys treated only two cases of Covid-19 with a traditional herbal tea and boom, they are shouting eureka 'they have gotten the cure'. It could also be a case that the two patients have a strong immunity to beat the virus and not as a result of tea treatment.

These guys want to disgrace the African continent again cry
