Covidex: Prof Patrick Ogwang Stopped From Holding Media Interviews

Covidex: Prof Patrick Ogwang Stopped From Holding Media Interviews

The Covidex Herbal Medicine Developer, Professor Patrick Ogwang Engeu, has been stopped from having media interviews about the recently approved covid-19 treatment supplement.

The news was revealed by NBS Television where the Mbarara University scientist was supposed to appear for an interview on Morning Breeze’s topical discussion segment.

“UPDATE: Apologies to our viewers, we shall not have Professor Ogwang Engeu Patrick on the Topical Discussion because he has been stopped from having media interviews, according to his Personal Assistant,” NBS tweeted after learning about the new developments.

However, the reason behind the stoppage was not disclosed by either NBS or the Professor’s personal assistant.

The Covidex Herbal Medicine was approved by the National Drugs Authority (NDA) last week to support viral infections, including COVID-19.

And over the weekend during an interview with Simon Kasyate on Capital FM Desert Island Discs, Prof Ogwang revealed that President Yoweri Museveni, in a telephone call, promised to extend a financial boost towards his project.

“I told him I want security especially for the factory and for myself. I also told him I want the capacity to expand production. He told me he would connect me to Paul Lokech and Madam Nakyobe (Lucy) to handle the security and financing. He kept calling me every day to check on the progress,” Ogwang said.

He also noted that he is already manufacturing, producing, and bringing to the market a minimum of 30,000 20mls bottles of his Covidex a day.

All this is being done from his Entebbe Road plot/small piece of land located in the Akright City which he converted to facilitate mass production of the vastly demanded Covidex product.

The 48-year-old further disclosed that he is humane and alive because most of his fellow Ugandans are financially stressed, which is why he is strictly selling to all NDA-approved pharmacies countrywide at as little as Shs5,000 per bottle.
