Makinde’s Recovery From COVID-19
Earlier, Makinde had claimed that he recovered from the coronavirus infection with the use of black seed oil, a claim the Minister said cannot be verified.
Recall that Mr Makinde tested positive for coronavirus on March 30 but again announced barely a week later that he had tested negative.
But, the Minister stated categorically that the Federal Government is not aware of the claims of the Oyo State Governor.
Mamora said he is not also aware that local herbs can cure COVID-19 disease although he agreed that people in the rural areas of the country often patronize local herbal homes for their health challenge.
He also disclosed that nobody has come to the ministry with proof that they have a local cure for COVID-19 disease, adding that the ministry has a department that oversees traditional medicine but will subject such claims to scientific research through the relevant agencies.
The Minister said that until the claims are scrutinized, the Federal Government can not confirm the authenticity of such.
