The Economic Community of West Africa States, in a statement yesterday, denied ordering a package of Covid Organics medicine from a third world country.
As part of its mandate to safeguard and improve the health of the region’s population, its health institution, West Africa Health Organization (WAHO), had over the years worked consistently with member states to scientifically investigate plant medicines of proven efficacy.
“These products are documented in our ECOWAS Pharmacopoeia of Traditional Medicines, the second edition of which will be published in the next few weeks. WAHO has also in the recent past identified, nurtured and supported centres of excellence in traditional medicine across the ECOWAS region.”
The ECOWAS said while it was aware of several claims of a COVID-19 cure in different parts of the world, it could only support and endorse products shown to be effective through scientific studies.
