The FDA has denied reports circulating in the media that, it has approved a herbal medicine as cure for Covid-19 in Ghana.
Few weeks before the arrival of the covid-19 vaccine in Ghana, reports were circulating in the media that, the FDA has approved a herbal medicine that cures Covdid-19.
In a report by UTV, the FDA denied this claims by stating that, the Hepa Plus Immune System Booster made by Ebenage Herbal Production and Consult in the
Ashanti Region has been approved by the FDA but has not been approved as a corona
In an Interview with the Northern Sector Directed of the FDA, Madam Nora Tei-Larbi
said ” We did a clinical trial on a herbal medicine to see if it could cure the coronavirus.
And before that, we informed Ghanaians before the clinical test. Same way we would have informed every body about this herbal medicine and directed everybody to go purchase if it could really cure the virus”.
She added, We heard the news about the FDA in collaboration with Okomfo Amokye Teaching Hospital approving of a herbal medicine to cure coronavirus. We want to state it categorically that, it is false. the Hepa Plus medicine is an immune booster and we are the ones who worked on it and approved it recently but not as a coronavirus medicine.
