The World Health Organization (WHO) has spoken out about using herbal medicines as potential treatments for coronavirus and other vaccines. The WHO said that it would begin testing African herbal medicines as part of the treatment.

Countries around the world are racing to find treatments for coronavirus, including vaccines. These herbal treatments will be included in clinical trials.

“Just like other areas of medicine, sound science is the sole basis for safe and effective traditional medicine therapies,” said Dr. Prosper Tumusiime, Director of Universal Health Coverage and Life Course Cluster at WHO Regional Office for Africa in a WHO statement.“The onset of COVID-19, like the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, has highlighted the need for strengthened health systems and accelerated research and development programmes, including on traditional medicines.”

The endorsement will help scientists in Africa work to reduce the prevalence of diseases, including the coronavirus.

“The adoption of the technical documents will ensure that universally acceptable clinical evidence of the efficacy of herbal medicines for the treatment of COVID-19 are generated without compromising the safety of participants,” said Professor Motlalepula Gilbert Matsabisa, the Expert Committee Chairman.
