The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, has responded to claims of the herbal COVID-19 remedies, saying they were either domiciled in the conventional news media or social media.
Director-General of the agency, Mojisola Adeyeye, said in a statement yesterday that : “The rush to mitigate the mortality and morbidly resulting from the COVID 19 pandemic has resulted in acceleration of product development, repurposing of formulations, off label use of therapeutics and the search for a vaccine to prevent COVID 19.
“Because no vaccine yet exists to prevent further spread of the virus, the huge burden of developing a cure or at best, a treatment for this deadly virus rests squarely on the shoulders of the medical world, of which Nigeria is no exception.
“In a bid to discover a cure, therefore, the public has witnessed quite a number of claims from different quotas – Complementary and Alternative Medicines Practitioners, Traditional healers, and the Academia.
“It is pertinent to note, however, that these claims are domiciled in either the conventional news media or the social media.
“The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, as at the time of this press release has only received application from one company for a product the company is presenting (for approval) to the agency for the treatment of the symptoms of COVID-19, and not for the cure of COVID-19 as a disease.
