Madagascar To Sign Confidentiality Clause With WHO On COVID-Organics
Madagascar President Andry Rajoelina has confirmed that the World Health Organization has agreed to sign a confidentiality clause on the formulation of COVID-Organics, the purported cure for the coronavirus pandemic, reported Africa News.
After a teleconference meeting with WHO’s Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom, the Madagascar president said the organization has also agreed to support the clinical observations process for the cure in Africa.
“Successful exchange with Dr. Tedros who commends Madagascar’s efforts in the fight against COVID-19,” he posted on Twitter.
The WHO director also confirmed the communication with Rajoelina.
“Good call with HE Rajoelina, President of Madagascar, about the #COVID19 situation in his country,” the WHO boss tweeted. “We discussed how to work together on therapeutics research and development. And we agreed that solidarity is the key to fighting the pandemic and keeping the world safe.”
The latest development comes a few days after WHO’s Africa head said they are in touch with Madagascar over CVO.
”We have offered to support the design of a study to look into this product,” Matshidiso Moeti said.
Madagascar has confirmed 371 COVID-19 cases, with one death and 131 recoveries, according to data compiled by the US’ John Hopkins University. The single fatality was a person who was battling diabetes with the president saying the wonder drug is being distributed for free in the virus hotspots.
Earlier this week, Rajoelina called out the public to drink CVO and protect themselves from the novel coronavirus. He said his government was in talks with foreign scientists and doctors to study alternative research possibilities, though carrying on with trials of the Artemisia plant, the main component of CVO.
Madagascar has exported the herbal medicine to a number of African countries including Comoros, Chad, Equatorial Guinea, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea Bissau, Liberia, Niger, Tanzania, Nigeria, and Senegal,
Rajoelina also said Madagascar is also going to send CVO to Haiti and scientific bodies.
