The small island nation of Madagascar is being put in the spotlight in the course of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic which has put the whole world on its knees.This herbal remedy is known as COVID ORGANICS. “Tests have been carried out — two people have now been cured by this treatment,” Rajoelina told ministers, diplomats and journalists at the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research (IMRA), which developed the treatment.

“This herbal tea gives results in seven days,” he said.

The President in the presence of ministers and all downed a dose of the herbal remedy, reassuring everyone that: “I will be the first to drink this today, in front of you, to show you that this product cures and does not kill.” Rajoelina says the treatment shall be shared free of charge to all Malagasy people all over the nation.

Covid Organics 

The treatment is an herbal one. The Malagasy Institute of Applied Research (IMRA) explains that it is a treatment derived from Artemisia Annua- a green leafy plant with a distinctive smell. Artemisia has proven efficiency in the treatment of malaria. It is, however, not the only component concoction as other herbs were also used in making Covid Organics.

The Director General of the IMRA said the following about the treatment: “Covid Organics will be used as prophylaxis, that is, for prevention, but clinical observations have shown a trend towards its effectiveness in a curative treatment.”

International Reactions to the Treatment. 

The World Health Organization (WHO) did not attend the event which has people to be vigilant about claimed cures for COVID-19, did not attend the event.

The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), referring to claims for herbal or tea remedies, says: “There is no scientific evidence that any of these alternative remedies can prevent or cure the illness caused by COVID-19. In fact, some of them may not be safe to consume.”

This is however to be expected because, COVID 19 has killed so many people in Europe. They have till now been unable to bring a working vaccine or treatment, leading to thousands of people dying in a day! They operate with the Darwinian philosophy, where stronger organisms survive while weaker ones die. They have ranked countries according to their technological and scientific development index, instead of ranking them according to their human index. It is such a naive way of judgment where whatever remedy for this pandemic that doesn’t fit their status quo is immediately rejected.

Apart from this, there is lobbying from the huge pharmaceutical companies who stand to gain billions of dollars from the development of any “cure” to this pandemic. They therefore are wired to give credibility only to a cure that only comes from their Western model. To give credibility to their actions, they have sought brand endorsers like the Gates, to make sure that any treatment that comes without the approval of these is immediately condemned and rejected. How come a third world, under-developed country can bring out a both curative and preventive treatment for a virus that has brought them to their knees?

To debunk the “uselessness” of herbal treatments as the West claims, it is comical to see that mighty pharmaceutical companies use many herbs in producing treatments for various ailments, which are WHO-approved. The same organization now finds itself rejecting another herbal remedy. One can’t help but ask oneself why?

Congratulations to the Malagasy for developing a treatment for the COVID-19 virus. Hopefully, it serves to treat and prevent the virus not only in Madagascar, but in as many countries in the world as possible. Kudos Africa. The world can also learn from us as Cheihk Anta Diop said once!
