President of Madagascar, Andry Rajoelina has hit back at critics speaking against the country’s herbal drug ‘COVID Organics (COV)’, which he claims cures and prevents Coronavirus.
Speaking in an interview with French broadcasters, France24 and RFI on Monday, Rajoelina, who spoke in French, said his country will continue to administer the herbal drugs which according to him accounts for majority of its virus recoveries.
“We have 171 cases, including 105 cured. The patients who were cured took only the COVID-Organics medication,” he confirmed.
When asked about warnings issued by WHO, ECOWAS, and Africa CDC, President Rajoelina dismissed the warnings, saying they are only trying to discourage the progress of the drug.
“If it weren’t Madagascar, but a European country that had discovered the remedy COVID-Organics, would there be so many doubts? I do not think so…”
“We say bad things about the Tambavy CVO product, when it only does good. They want to slow us down, discourage us, forbid us to move forward …” he further stressed.
