The president also urged the citizens of Madagascar to plant artemisia.

President Rajoelina said he was in touch with scientists from the US to help with research.

The ingredient is in the Madagascan drink Covid-Organics – the president said. Currently, he is also pursuing validation from the World Heath Organization (WHO) for the drink.

The Covid-Organics drink has been delivered to other African countries including Guinea-Bissau and Equatorial Guinea.

Tanzania and Comoros are the latest countries that are to import the purported COVID-19 herbal cure announced by Madagascar. According to reports, the leaders of both countries confirmed their interest over the weekend.

Comorian president, Azali Assoumani, in a teleconference with his Malagasy counterpart, Andry Rajoelina, made a formal request for the product that has been described largely as effective.

Equatorial Guinea was the first African country to take stock of CovidOrganics. According to reports, a delegation from Guinea-Bissau has already taken a consignment of the products.
