To avoid generalized contagion at all costs and to limit the cases on the African continent where the number of deaths linked to Covid-19 remains low, the national authorities are trying, through more or less restrictive measures, to curb the spread of the virus and organize themselves to quickly take care of the sick.
The news went around the world on Sunday April 20 in the evening of 2020, when Madagascan President Andry Rajoelina announced that Madagascar was in possession of a “vita malagasy” remedy (made in Madagascar) with preventive and curative properties against the coronavirus. Covid-Organics, the name given to this treatment, is an herbal tea made from dried Artemisia leaves, produced by the Malagasy Institute for Applied Research (IMRA) [4].
Also, the inventor of Apivirine, a product proposed against the Coronavirus, spoke on “The African Debate” on Sunday April 19, 2020 on RFI. In his statements, the Beninese Valentin Agon reaffirms the power of his product against the pandemic [5]. The Network of practitioners and herbalists of traditional medicine in the Center region (Burkina Faso) has made proposals for plants which, failing to cure coronavirus disease, would be able to prevent it and stop contagion [6]. Finally, personal protective equipment (face mask, hydroalcoholic gels, gloves, etc.) and the provision of health centers with hand washing devices and posters by Governments must be noted.
