NDA Dismisses Allegations Of Approving Covid-19 Local Herb Circulating On Market

 National Drug Authority(NDA) has dismissed allegations of approving a Covid-19 local herb called COVIDEX, a herbal remedy from PHARMBIOTRAC that is associated with Mbarara University Prof. Patrick Ogwang, a prolific scientist, leading the Pharm-Bio Technology &Traditional Medicine Centre at the Mbarara based University.

According to Prof Ogwang, the herbal remedy cures COVID-19 by killing the virus in the nasopharynx, mouth and oesophagus.

  Statement From NDA

With Ugandans desperate to prevent themselves from the virus, Covidex has been on a roll out all over urban areas as its factory price is just Shs3000 a unit pack. Dose for 7 days is Shs.21000 factory price.

However, National Drug Authority (NDA) has immediately dismissed the drug saying it has never been assessed nor approved .

NDA has revealed that it has not undertaken any assessment or approved Covidex, neither has it received any application from the innovator of the Covidex as required by National Drug Policy and Act cap 206.

 NDA has further urged the public not to use the drug until all necessary processes are conducted to commend its usage. Similarly it called upon the innovator of COVIDEX to seek guidance from NDA as they are willing to support such local project
