By ACHADU GABRIEL, Kaduna
A Kaduna based COVID-19 cure claimant, Professor Ayodele Israel Adeleye has said that proceedures set out by the federal government, for submission and verification of herbal drugs for the cure of the pandemic are unnecessary and too long to follow oyn emergency situations, requiring urgent intervention to save lives.
The professor of microbiology and parasitology made the remarks while presenting his herbal drug to the State Coordinator of NAFDAC, Kaduna State, Dadi Nantim Mullah, in Kaduna.
The researcher who is also into complimentary medicine challenged the FG to allow him into isolation centre unprotected and treat five patients already on ventilators and five other positive patients with his drug under television camera.
Prof. Adeleye said he is fully prepared to carryout the treatment on the ten patients free at the isolation centre without wearing any protective jackets, to prove the efficacy of his drug under a wider media coverage.
He explained that his cure research on COVID-19 pandemic resulted in production of virus killer herbal medcine, which he submitted to expedite action and reached those affected as quickly as possible to reduce the death rates and save lives.
“The drug has been fully lebelled and information on the awareness on COVID-19 and other virus researches like Lassa, Ebola and HIV are also attached.
“The drug is fast acting, reqiring only one wine glass dosage, and a patient is healed and may test negative from the second day onward.
“The drug gives protection (immunity) from further infection. Uninfected patients will also enjoy the same immunity and protection after taking it.
“There is no side effect whatsoever from user of the drug. It removes blockage of the lungs that allows patients to breath freely. No ventilator is required after one wine glass treatment.
“I intend to treat five patients already on ventilators and five positive persons free of charge.
“I intend to treat directly five patients that are positive without any protective gadget or jacket, and under the scrutiny of the media especially television cameras.
“l also intend to do this without any protection to allay the fears of doubting the efficacy of the drug as mentioned,” he declared.
