The drug for the treatment of the dreaded coronavirus will be ready soon if the testing of the vaccine is completed.

The assurance was given by the Chairman of the Imo State Taskforce on COVID-19, Prof. Maurice Iwu in Owerri on Wednesday.

The professor of Pharmacognosy from the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), had presented a plant-based patented treatment for COVID-19 to the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu which is now been tested in United States.

While briefing newsmen in Owerri shortly after Seplat Petroleum and Waltersmith Oil Ltd donated COVID-19 preventive material to the state government, Prof. Iwu disclosed that there is a positive sign that it would soon be ready.

“The work on the drug we are developing is still going on. We are encouraged by the result we are getting. We are getting very positive signs.”

He disclosed further “luckily the drug is a safe one. It is drug already in use. We are repurposing it for this particular purpose. So when we finished the studying and testing we are doing, I think the drug will come up in line very very soon. ”

Most importantly, he added “if the pandemic escalates, the NAFDAC will know what to do, like they did in USA to fast track the use of chloroquine.

“If we have a need NAFDAC will know what to do. Right now the product is in human use, what we are doing is to repurpose it for this particular event, ” he stated.

Nigeria has the best medical practitioners in the world, but with no modern equipment's to practice their work. The government of Nigeria with their corrupt systems since independence has failed the country and Nigeria is now a failed State.

Great news, if true. Hope you patent it too as that could be a feather in NGR's next on the international stage.
