Thank You Africa: African countries order Madagascan COVID19 herbal drug despite W.H.O backlash

Despite unjust criticism by the W.H.O against the Madagascan herbal treatment of COVID19, several African countries, including Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea and Liberia, have already ordered Covid-Organics, which is produced from the artemisia plant – the source of an ingredient used in a malaria treatment and other Malagasy plants.

The only way Africa can develop faster is by encouraging their own. Kim once said “Until the day Africans start practicing their tradition as religion they might never develop.” If we must move forward, we must learn to tell our own story and not allow others tell our story to us. We must tell our story and do so positively. Madagascar has done it and we done expect the whites to give the recognition, celebrate or spread the good news for us. We must learn how to endorse and inform ourselves by ourselves, because that is the only way we can tell our story the way we need it to be told. Stand Up for Africa and support Madagascar. Thank You Madagascar, God Bless Africa.

The World Health Organization says there are close to ten “top” candidates for a COVID-19 vaccine, but ignores the Madagascan herbal drug treating Africans having COVID19.

The WHO has been criticised for it’s handling of the virus, with some accusing the body of neglecting Madagascar’s organic treatment.

Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina has said criticism of herbal tonic that he is touting as a treatment for Covid-19 shows the West’s condescending attitude towards Africa.

“If it was a European country that had actually discovered this remedy, would there be so much doubt? I don’t think so,” Mr Rajoelina said in an interview with French news channel, France 24..

In the television interview, Mr Rajoelina said “African scientists… should not be underestimated.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned against using Madagascan herbal (COVID organic) remedies to treat coronavirus.

Mr Rajoelina’s tonic has been has undergone successful trials in his country and other African countries, but the W.H.O insist it has not undergone clinical trials. The tonic was tried out on fewer than 20 people over three weeks, a presidential aide told the BBC, when the product was first launched last month.

Madagascar has reported 193 Covid-19 cases and no deaths.
