Madagascar bills Nigeria €170,000 for COVID-Organics
<!– The COVID-Organics made in Madagascar not for free –>
Contrary to wide impressions, Madagascar is not playing Father Christmas with its COVID-Organics herbal drink.
According to reports, the island nation has asked Nigeria to pay 170,000 Euros for the consignment delivered by Guinea Bissau President Umaro Sissoco Embalo.
President Buhari said Nigeria would take the drug through intensive test to determine its suitability.
The Nation reported that an invoice was delivered along with the drug.
” Madagascar has asked Nigeria to pay over €170,000 (N78, 200,000). We have received the invoice because the African country has made us to realise that the drugs are not being given out free”, The Nation quoted a source as saying.
Meanwhile, Madagascar has registered its first coronavirus death.
It was a 57-year-old medical worker who suffered from diabetes and high blood pressure, the national COVID-19 taskforce said on Sunday.
Taskforce spokeswoman Hanta Danielle Vololontiana said in a televised statement that the man died on Saturday night.
“A man died from COVID-19 in Madagascar … he is 57 years old and a member of the medical staff,” she said.
