The Covid-19 Trust Fund has released GH¢1.8m for research into coronavirus herbal medication.
Speaking at a signing ceremony at the Jubilee House, Chairperson of the Fund, Sophia Akuffo, asserted that it would be prudent to use herbal remedies to fight COVID-19.
She added that the spike in Covid-19 cases has made it prudent for the use of unorthodox medicines to fight the virus.
“The purpose of this financial support is to fund research into the development of herbal products against the SARS COVID-2 virus, the COVID-19 virus.”
“This funding is intended to enable the CPMI [Centre for Plant Medicine Research] to undertake full-scale research and development of antiviral and immunomodulatory herbal products,” she said.
