Presidential taskforce on Covid-19 warns on excessive herb taking

Presidential taskforce on Covid-19 officials are warning against excessive herb and concoction taking as remedy to covid-19, saying this can be disastrous to people’s health.

Phuka: Use in moderation

Dr. John Phuka, Co-Chairperson for Presidential Taskforce on Covid-19 says home remedies should be used in moderation as they have the potential to cause stress on various organs.

Phuka says large consumptions can potentially lead to death.

“Let us therefore ensure that we have a normal balanced diet when infected with Covid-19, take some rest punctuated with moderate activity and exercise, and drink lots of water.

“A reminder that a Covid-19 diagnosis does not equal to death. We can beat the disease if we take care of ourselves and follow regulated procedures by the Ministry of Health,” says Phuka.

Malawians have resorted to taking ginger, garlic, lemons with soda and steaming with blue gum tree leaves as the remedy for covid-19 although this has not been proven scientifically that this can cure or prevent the infection.

The pharmaceutical companies can not accept that herbal remedies are the way to go to cure this so called covid19 because they are in business of selling there chemicals to destroy the black human race.

You understand that Pfizer and other pharmaceutical companies have black board members/directors/managers/….? Having no monies / bad position at bargaining is a problem, not race. EU just found that a pharmaceutical company which they paid for vaccine says the contract is not binding, but the company fulfills its duty to UK and others. Money/power is talking here. It’s a crisis worldwide.

Umbuli ndi matendanso paokha.
Reminds me of back in the days when people travelled to Machinga (I believe), to drink some filthy water in the belief they would be cured of their HIV aids.

So true… Excessive intake of herbs cause liver failure which is also fatal.
