During a working session by videoconference with the Madagascan presidents Andry Rajoelina and Umaro Sissoco Embalo of Guinea-Bissau, the Congolese president Denis Sassou Nguesso decided to adopt the herbal tea from the Big Island. The information was relayed today by the Minister of Communication Thierry Moungala on his Twitter account. A shipment of Covid-Organics will also be sent to Congolese soil.

In West Africa, on the other hand, this remedy seems to be successful. Nearly 15 countries will receive this herbal tea which was launched on April 20, 2020. These include Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Togo, Niger, Sierra Leone, The Gambia, Nigeria, Cape Verde, Senegal and Guinea Bissau. President Umaro Sissoco Embalo of Guinea-Bissau will be responsible for the distribution of Covid-Organics in the Cédéao area. The country received from Antananarivo a significant amount of this “miracle drug”.
