The herbal drug which Madagascar says it uses to treat COVID-19 patients has reached Nigeria.

President Muhammadu Buhari who received portions of the drug from Guinea Bissau President Umaro Embaro, said the drug must be verified before use.


Presidential Spokesman, Garba Shehu in a statement quoted President Buhari as saying the drug will go through the verification process which other remedies for the disease are being subjected to.


The drug, which is branded as herbal tea and named COVID-Organics, was launched on April 20, with its main ingredient being sweet wormwood, Artemisia annua - a plant of Asian origin from where the antimalarial drug, artemisinin, came.



At least fifty-five COVID-19 patients in Madagascar have recovered after being treated with the remedy.
