Herbalists are encouraged finding cure against the Covid-19 disease. A program has been initiated to help medicine men find cure for the disease as an alternative method for the country.
The PS of Sports, Culture, and Heritage, Josephta Mukobe, says the initiative will focus more on herbalists on finding cure against Covid-19.
Mukobe states that the process of discovering the cure for Covid-19 should not be left only to the government. She additionally states that the world is also looking for Covid-19 cure through herbal medicines.
She challenges medicine men to find cure for the virus as they work hand in hand with authorities from Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI).
So far the disease has claimed at least 1, 600 Kenyan lives.
In addition, Governor Wycliffe Oparanya says there is an urgent need in finding a solution that will last when it comes to Covid-19. He also says that other governors should support herbalists through the funding and research.
Oparanya states that medicine men should not sit on their innovation, trees, and animal products which have been helpful in the past. He also says that they should come on board and help solve this pandemic.
According to sources, at least 10 herbalists claim that their remedies can help cure complications caused by Covid-19.
