The Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha 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.

Mustapha made the announcement on Wednesday, during the PTF’s daily press briefing 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.

The SGF said: “The occurrences in Kano and some other cities have given cause to launch our research initiatives using existing structures and systems in a manner that will build a legacy and prepare Nigeria for any future pandemic.

“Out of the numerous claims, three were found to deserve further investigation and we have forwarded them to the relevant authorities for appropriate review.”

He added that efforts are equally being made to meet inventors of locally fabricated COVID-19 equipment.

“Similarly, efforts are being made by the Ministry of Science and Technology to subject a good number of locally fabricated COVID-19 equipment for verification and subsequent certification”.
