Meanwhile Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says government has reached out to Madagascar to make available its supposed COVID-19 herbal remedy.
He stressed that the product will undergo strict testing by appropriate authorities in Ghana to prove the efficacy or otherwise before it will be administered if at all.
“We are considering it [the herbal cure]. We have reached out to them [Madagascar]. We have asked that it [should] be made available to us and like all drugs, it will be tested by FDA and in this case by the Center for Plant Medicine and if proven efficacious, we can recommend its use,” he said on state TV.

May 19: govt to explain boom recoveries and address hot spot case management

The Ministry is to hold a press briefing at 16:00 GMT to address three main issues: case management in hot spots – Obuasi and Tema, the issue of jumbo recoveries and stigmatization of victims.
The over 1,000 recoveries in two days have attracted questions from an aide to the former president and a fightback by pro-government elements.
A renowned neurosurgeon at the main hospital, Dr. Hadi Abdallah, explained in a Facebook post that it was achieved after a backlog of tests were cleared. According to him, case management by medis needed to be highly applauded.
