The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has announced that three out of the numerous claims of COVID-19 herbal cure have been identified and forwarded to relevant authorities for further investigation and validation.
Chairman of the PTF, Boss Mustapha made the announcement while briefing journalists in Abuja.
He said the validation was made by the Federal Ministry of Health after holding a virtual meeting with Nigerian Researchers and Scientists.
He noted that the decision to meet with the researchers was also prompted by the incidents of mysterious deaths in Kano and some other cities.
He added that efforts are equally being made to meet inventors of locally fabricated COVID-19 equipment.
The PTF Chairman stressed that the subject of research is central to the PTF and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is willing to support research efforts.
He, therefore, urged researchers to take up the challenge and come boldly forward with their innovation.
