Madagascar Herb Can’t Cure COVID-19 – NIPRD



The National Institute of Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD) has stated results from evaluation and analysis of Madagascar’s cure called ‘COVID Organics’ have revealed it cannot effectively cure coronavirus as claimed.

The Institute said the drug, which contains majorly Artemisia annua, reduces frequency of cough with maximum dose, producing an effect equivalent to that produced by the centrally acting cough-suppressant, dihydrocodeine.

NIPRD however said it will further investigate the drug’s effect on tracheal mucus expectoration.

NIPRD said:

“Safety studies show that COVID ORGANICS (CVO) products do not alter the normal physiology of the animals.

“CVO caused a significant decrease in the platelet counts although the values are within the physiological range for Wistar rats.”
