Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina has insisted that his country will proceed to use their indigenous COVID-19 cure to treat patients infected with the virus.
WHO has consistently warned against Madagascar’s COVID-Organics on the basis that they have not been clinically tested and proven.
But in Andry Rajoelina’s view, the position of the World Health Organization, calling on the world to distant itself from the cure, is because it is discovered in Africa.
Speaking in an interview with France24, the President of Madagascar said that “What if this remedy had been discovered by a European country, instead of Madagascar? Would people doubt it so much? I don’t think so.”.
“What is the problem with COVID-Organics, really? Could it be that this product comes from Africa? Could it be that it’s not OK for a country like Madagascar, which is the 63rd poorest country in the world… to have come up with (this formula) that can help save the world?” asked Rajoelina, who claims the infusion cures patients within ten days.
On the basis of this, he indicated that “No one will stop us from moving forward – not a country, not an organisation.”
He said the proof of the tonic’s efficacy was in the “healing” of “our patients”, calling it a “preventive and curative remedy. The patients who have healed have taken no other product than COVID-Organics.”
He iterated Madagascar has a long history of traditional medicine adding that many pharmaceutical drugs authorised in the West have turned out to be harmful, such as the Mediator weight loss drug in France.
Rajoelina said Madagascar has reported 171 coronavirus infections and 105 recoveries to date, with no deaths.
