Allow me treat COVID-19 patients, trado-medical practitioner tells FG

By Osagie Otabor, Akure

A trado-medical practitioner in Ondo State, Dr. Ola Olasumbo, has asked the Federal and Ondo State Governments to allow him treat some patients suffering from COVID-19 free of charge.

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu had last week said the State would soon begin the use of herbal drugs for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

Akeredolu said that he would try the herbs suggested by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, who urged government to seek internal solution to the cure of the virus.

Olasumbo said he has accepted the challenge of Akeredolu on the use of herbs to cure COVID-19 and all its symptoms as he has developed possible cure of COVID-19.

Olasumbo, who spoke to journalists in Akure, said the vaccine was developed after several months of research

He stated that the research led him to discover that symptoms of coronavirus were similar to chicken pox and measles that are highly contagious and deadly.

Olasumbo said he was not ready to collect any monetary benefit from government for the treatment of COVID-19.

The herbal practitioner said the vaccine were made of three plants.

He argued that lockdown was not the solution but the development of herbs to treat the ailment.

According to him, “When the virus was reported in China with subsequent confirmed cases in other parts of the world, the association of herbal practitioners in Nigeria met and it was resolved that everyone should go into research towards finding a cure for the virus.

“After months of research, I discovered the drug which has already been produced. But what I’m waiting for now is NAFDAC’s approval for the clinical trial to commence.

“In the past, I have produced drugs which cured measles and chicken pox as well as other life threatening ailments. So, with this latest discovery, I’m certain that COVID-19 has been defeated.”
