The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (Nafdac) says it has received only one application from one company for the endorsement of a product to treat the symptoms of COVID-19 and not the virus itself.
The Director-General of NAFDAC, Prof. Moji Adeyeye, said this in a statement today, saying other claims about a possible cure for COVID-19 in Nigeria only exist on social media and the pages of newspaper.
The agency admitted that Africa is indeed blessed with herbs but stated that all possible cures must pass all scientific testing before approval.
