Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has come out to say that the state might have its own cure for the COVID-19 pandemic very soon.
The governor recently revealed that his administration has been encouraging traditional medicine practitioners in the state to find a cure for the virus, and this move might pay off eventually.
According to him, any cure that is manufactured will still go through clinical authentication and approval so it can be safe for residents and Nigerians.
He added that every herbal combinations and orthodox medicine being displayed on social media right now have not been authenticated and approved for clinical use yet, so the citizens should be careful.
His words, “Whatever the cure the state comes up with will still go through clinical authentication and approval.
“There have been various suggestions and unauthorised recommendations of drugs and therapies for COVID-19.
“We wish to use this opportunity to advise the public against embarking on any harmful and indiscriminate act.
“All the herbal combinations and orthodox medicine, mostly being promoted and displayed on the social media and elsewhere, have not yet been authenticated and approved for clinical use.”
“Our records of only four confirmed new cases support that the curve is not flattening yet and that there is still much to be done,”
“We will accelerate such consultations and review. Without doubt, the people will hear from me very soon.”
