Guinea Bissau has become the third African nation with leaders expressing interest in the Tambavy Covid Organics product for their own citizens.
Madagascar’s President Rajoelina announced a shipment of the herbal remedy was on its way Thursday to Guinea Bissau, after President Umaro Sissoco Embalo sent a deputy health minister to Madagascar to seal the deal, Africa Times reports.
President Macky Sall of Senegal praised Rajoelina last week for his leadership in fighting the coronavirus pandemic, stopping short of an endorsement of the herbal tea while adding that he salutes “Madagascar’s efforts in the search for therapeutic solutions which Senegal is following with interest.”
Accoding to AfricaTimes, Rajoelina also has spoken with President Felix Tshisekedi of Democratic Republic of Congo about the product, and said Africa is united in finding solutions to the COVID-19 outbreak.
President Andry Rajoelina, has been touting the traditional remedy developed by scientists at the Malagasy Institute for Applied Research (IMRA) in his Indian Ocean island nation.
