The Special Adviser to Governor of Anambra State on Indigenous Medicine and Herbal Practice, Dr Onyekachukwu Ibezim, said the government has confirmed six herbal drugs that can treat Covid-19.
Ibezim confirmed to the News Agency of Nigeria in Awka on Tuesday that the agency had sent the products to the National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control(NAFDAC).
The Special Adviser said a group of specialist had approved the drug in the state before sending to NAFDAC for its final confirmation and approval for public consumption.
We do not discriminate, the government has provided a friendly environment for business to thrive for all genuine herbal practitioners despite their states of origin.
“Anambra Traditional Medicine Board has been assigned the responsibility of properly analysing herbal products in the state and declare them fit for use by the public or otherwise before they are pushed out; all practitioners are advised to comply,” he said.
