If Africa is full of several well-known doctors and researchers, their inventions continue to suffer until now, the rejection of WHO. Right or wrong?
Covid-Organics, which was found by researchers at the Madagascan Institute for Applied Research (IMRA) to fight the new coronavirus, is presented as a herbal tea. It is “both preventative and curative compound of artemisia and Madagascan medicinal plants,” according to Madagasca’s president.
“Tests have been done – two people have now been cured of this treatment,” Rajoelina said on Monday during the launch of Covid-Organics. “This herb yields seven-day results,” said Madagascan President Andry Rajoelina.
And today’s treatment is worthy of Madagasca’s presidential feeling and admiration throughout Africa or nearly. From the anonymous to the leaders, including Presidents Tshisekedi and Sall, almost the entire continent talks about it. And that’s why Covid-Organic’s skills are enhanced both on the web and through other channels.

But the Malagic discovery, even though it is the work of eminent scientists whose physician Charles Andrianjara still does not convince the WHO that there is still “no evidence (scientific, editor’s note)” that this product can “prevent or cure” the corona virus.
Statement that released passions on social networks where Africans expressed their anger towards the world’s top mass.
And if the controversy still seems to be stifled in diplomatic cases, the Madagascan product is not without reminiscent of ancient African inventions within the context of medicine. The case of Immunorex DM28. The work of the Gabonese scientist, Professor Donation Mavoungou, who died on February 20, Immunorex DM28, has never been unanimously approved by the WHO.
Where did Christiaan Barnard go?
To the point that governments including the DRC who had ordered were forced to give it up. There was so much pressure from what the observers called “the demonization of Immunorex DM28”.
Long before the Gabonese scientist, MM1 of Professors Lurhuma of Zaire (current DRK) and Ahmed Shafik of Egypt had also suffered a bitter failure before the WHO which invalidated the product in the 1980s, again lacked “scientific evidence” “.
However, many medical inventions from researchers on the continent have already benefited from WHO’s satisfaction. One of the most symbolic remains the successful heart transplant for the first time in 1967 by South African surgeon Christiaan Barnard.
Having succeeded where his colleagues including the American James Hardy had failed, Christiaan Barnard was entitled to any place in the scientific goth of the world. So much so that the media in 2000 classified the Afrikaners among “Africans of the 20th century”.
What happens if African scientists finally play their part in the 21st century? There, in any case, is the hardest desire of many Africans. But a dream that depends not only on the scientific objectivity that we should rightly demand from the WHO, but also, and above all, on the answers that the Africans themselves will prepare for the close rejections of the international institutions.
