COVID-Organics: Madagascar’s Supposed Cure for COVID-19

Covid-19 has shaken the world in a higher magnitude than any other illness in recent times. The novel coronavirus has spread to almost all ends of the earth with an exception only to Antarctica and has led to the total or partial lockdown of the world’s Bustiest cities.

While the WHO, in collaboration with local health departments, has been on standby as they sensitize the general public on symptoms of the virus as well as precautionary measures, studies are being carried out all over the world in search of a cure.

Towards the last days in April 2020, reports of unarmed Madagascar soldiers going door-to-door in the countries capital of Antananarivo and doling out small sachets of a local herbal tea has made headlines. The herbal tea, which was described by Malagasy President, Andry Rajoelina as a potent remedy against the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Named COVID-Organics, the herbal tonic, is derived from the plant called artemisia. The plant has proven to be an effective treatment for malaria and has shown promise in cancer treatment. The artemisia plant has been used in combination with some other indigenous herbs in the formulation of COVID-Organics.

While the supposed herbal cure has been developed and produced in large quantities by the Madagascar Institute of Applied Research (IMRA), at the time of writing this article, it is yet to be tested internationally.

In an announcement during the official launch of the new tonic on Tuesday, president Raholina said: “This herbal tea gives results in seven days. We can change the history of the entire world.” To prove the safety of the tonic, the president took a dose of the tonic for the public to see. “Two people have now been cured by this treatment.”

At the moment, mainstream scientists have continued to warn of the potential risk that may emanate from the use of untested herbal brews.

There is currently no generally accepted cure for this strain of coronavirus, which has presently infected no less than 121 people in Madagascar and over 2.6 million people worldwide.

Yet military officials on this African Indian Ocean island nation maintain that the infusion would be much better than having nothing at all.

Military doctor, Colonel Willy Ratovondrainy, said on state television, as troops were seen embarking on a mass distribution campaign, “It will strengthen immunity.”

In pairs, Malagasy soldiers followed people through the narrow alleyways of Antananarivo into their homes.

Madagascar deployed its army in the month of March to help enforce a lockdown in all of its three main cities in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Madagascar’s coronavirus cases have remained relatively low compared to other parts of the world, and so far, there have been no recorded deaths.

However, the country’s healthcare system is fragile and would easily be flooded by a surge in new cases, and authorities are putting all efforts into prevention.

Their goal is to raise enough awareness about the novel coronavirus and strengthen the immune systems of people.
