Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Rotimi Akaredolu says the state may soon have its own cure for COVID-19.
According to NAN, the Governor stated this while giving an update on COVID-19 in the state on Monday.
Akeredolu said the government is encouraging traditional medicine practitioners in the state to find a cure for the disease.
He, however, warned the public against using unauthorised drugs and therapies for COVID-19. “Whatever the cure the state comes up with will still go through clinical authentication and approval,” he said.
“There have been various suggestions and unauthorised recommendations of drugs and therapies for COVID-19. We wish to use this opportunity to advise the public against embarking on any harmful and indiscriminate act.
“All the herbal combinations and orthodox medicine, mostly being promoted and displayed on the social media and elsewhere, have not yet been authenticated and approved for clinical use.”
The governor urged the people of the state to promptly report any suspected case for medical review and appropriate treatment.
