Madagascar Enforce Lockdown Amid Surge In COVID-19 Cases After Claiming Its “COVID-Organics” Cure Works.

Madagascar after claiming its COVID-Organics drink prevents and cures Coronavirus, forced to impose lockdown amid surge in Coronavirus cases in the country.

The novel coronavirus pandemic has infected more than 11 million people, claiming more than 526,000 lives across the world. India’s daily cases breach 20,000 mark for 1st time

President Andry Rajolina back in April launched a herbal medicine, ‘COVID Organics’, which he claimed prevents and cures coronavirus. Launched on April 20, the COVID-Organics was developed by the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research (IMRA). Its main ingredient is said to be sweet wormwood (Artemisia annua), a plant of Asian origin from where the antimalarial drug, artemisinin, came.

Madagascar authorities have imposed a total lockdown in the Analamanga region due to the rise in coronavirus cases, the presidency said in a statement. Analamanga is a region in central Madagascar, containing the capital Antananarivo and its surrounding metropolitan area.

The lockdown measures will be effective for a period of 15 days, starting from Monday July 6 to last until July 20. The decision came after an extraordinary Council of Ministers meeting on Saturday evening. The measures have been taken because of the spread of the virus and the rise of COVID-19 cases, according to the statement.

The country was not used to registering a dozen cases a day, but the country has recently seen a spike in cases after 216 people tested positive Saturday, July 4th.
