Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a group of Nigerian Catholic priests had developed a supposed cure for the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, a pill called Pax CVD Plus.
The disclosure was made in a statement released and signed by Father Anselm Adodo OSB on Wednesday, April 29, on the official page of the Pax Herbal Clinic and Research Laboratories.
Legit.ng gathered that the cleric said the pill is solely for the treatment of coronavirus.
Father Anselm said that plant-based pills are seemingly the best approach for coronavirus because these pills are easily produced, stored and distributed and can be handled by medical and non-medical personnel as they pose a low contamination risk.
He said the constituents of the pills are antiviral and immunomodulatory agents which help to stimulate antibodies.
The cleric said: “The Pax CVD PLUS contains herbs and active phytoconstituents with documented scientific evidence based on clinical reports of their efficacy and safety.”
According to Father Anselm, the research is a joint effort of experts from University of Lagos and University of Benin, a tertiary health institution—Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital, Edo state and experts sent by Prof Tunde Salako and Prof Catherine Adeyeye.
Professor Salako is the head of the National Institute of Pha'maceutical Research and Development, while Professor Adeyeye is the director-general of NAFDAC.
