No herbal medicine has been approved for COVID-19 – NAFDAC

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has insisted that it is yet to approve any herbal medicine for the treatment of COVID-19.

The Director of Public Affairs of the agency, Dr Abubakar Jimoh, in an interview with our correspondent, said a drug could only be certified for use after going through clinical trials.

He said, “There is a procedure for everything, we are talking about human lives here, people cannot just put together concoction and expect people to consume it just like that. So far the herbal mixture will be for public consumption due diligence must be followed.
