The Department of Science and Innovation alongside the Madagascar Science and Technology Department will conduct an evaluation of the COVID-Organics drink.
The drink was formulated by the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research and it can reportedly prevent Covid-19.
The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has agreed to a programme of action alongside the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research.
The Department says that they will use the World Health Organisation’s Guidelines for Evaluation of Traditional Medicines as the framework to determine the efficacy of the drink.
Minister Blade Nzimande said that South Africa has committed to avail the necessary facilities and human capital needed to assist other African countries to develop a cure for the virus.
The Department says that this partnership will assist in achieving the continental goal of expanding indigenous knowledge, biodiversity and innovation.
