Ghana’s Information Minister, Oppong Nkrumah has clarified the reports that Ghana has received some medicinal supplies from Madagascar to cure Coronavirus.
According to Oppong Nkrumah, Madagascar only called on Ghana just as many other countries to patronize their supposed remedy for the deadly virus.
“There are also local offers, local Ghanaians who say they have some sort of preparations that they believe can cure…So I just want to be clear that reports that we have received and we are testing drugs from Madagascar is incorrect,” he said during Information Ministry press briefing.
He explained that the information ministry only sent information to the public indicating that Madagascar has reached out to ““us with their supposed or suggested cure and that we will test it through the FDA and Center for Plants and Medicine before making a decision.”
Kojo Oppong added that Kojo Oppong Nkrumah added that the same process goes for locals who have requested that they have a cure. According to him, the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) and the Center for Plants and Medicine will have them tested and approve before more editions are made.
“The Center for Plants and Medicine and the FDA will test all these supposed cures made available and after those tests have been done, editions can be made by the clinicians.” He told journalists at the press conference.
