Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina seems to have made changes to the alleged widespread coronavirus drug that his country developed.
However, this has been debated by the World Health Organization (WHO) because there is no scientific evidence to support that claim.
Madagascar’s National Medical Academy also questioned the effectiveness of the Artemisia-based drink and said it could endanger human health.
But on Tuesday, Rajoelina said Madagascar would begin injecting Artemisia and clinical trials were underway in the United States.
Michel Sahondrarimalala, doctor and director of the Madagascar judicial research department, has now clarified on behalf of the president, saying that journalists do not understand what the head of state was saying.
He said he never thought to make Artemisia injectable, and the Scientific Committee did not consider it.
