In a phone call, the head of the UN’s World Health Organization commended Madagascar’s efforts against the coronavirus pandemic, according to the nation’s president.

Late Wednesday President Andry Rajoelina took to Twitter to say he had a successful talk with Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and that the WHO will sign a confidentiality clause on the formulation of Covid Organics (CVO) – an herbal beverage Rajoelina has claimed could prevent or cure the virus – and will support clinical observations in Africa.

His comments came a few days after WHO’s Africa head said they are in touch with Madagascar over CVO.

”We have offered to support the design of a study to look into this product,” Matshidiso Moeti said.

The Indian Ocean nation has confirmed 371 COVID-19 cases, with two death and 131 recoveries, according to data compiled by the US’ John Hopkins University.

On Sunday Rajoelina urged the public to protect themselves from the novel coronavirus by drinking CVO.

Madagascar has sent CVO to several African countries including Comoros, Guinea Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Niger, Tanzania, Nigeria, Senegal, and Chad.

Rajoelina also said Madagascar will send CVO to Haiti and scientific bodies.

Chinese propaganda attack on US ‘disgrace’, Trump

ANKARA 

US President Donald Trump said Wednesday that a Chinese disinformation and propaganda attack on his country and Europe is a disgrace.

“[China’s Foreign Ministry] Spokesman [Zhao Lijian] speaks stupidly on behalf of China, trying desperately to deflect the pain and carnage that their country spread throughout the world. Its disinformation and propaganda attack on the United States and Europe is a disgrace,” Trump said on Twitter.

“China is on a massive disinformation campaign because they are desperate to have Sleepy Joe Biden win the presidential race so they can continue to rip-off the United States, as they have done for decades, until I came along!,” he added.

Earlier, Lijian said on Twitter that the “US non-stop disinformation may confuse and mislead some for a while.”

Regarding Trump’s letter to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, he said the US should focus on beating the coronavirus rather than “give an ultimatum to the organization that leads [the] global epidemic response.”

In April, Trump said the WHO was China-centric and temporarily cut US funding with a review pending.

He criticized its late warnings against the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected nearly 5 million people worldwide and killed more than 328,000.

On Monday, Trump gave the WHO 30 days to “commit to major substantive improvements” or the US would permanently freeze funding for the body and reconsider its membership.
