A Delta-born man from Okpanam, in Oshimili North Local Government Area and trado-medical doctor, Mr John Asoya, has claimed that he has a strong concoction that could cure Coronavirus disease (COVID 19).
The self-acclaimed curer of COVID-19 disclosed this in Okpanam while speaking to newsmen.
Asoya stated that he had used the contents of his concoction to treat life-threatening ailments such as malaria, acute fever, high blood pressure, reduction of the sugar level in the body and other illnesses.
Although he acknowledged the concoction had not undergone clinical screening to detect its power, he urged scientists and medical experts across the globe not to rule out the efficacy of traditional medicines in tackling the ravaging coronavirus.
Asoya revealed that though the deadly virus was an uncommon disease that had taken the world by surprise, noted that it could be categorised into the family of acute malaria and fever.
He however said that the Coronavirus had proven to be far much deadlier than the two ailments of malaria and high fever especially considering its mode of transmission among humans.
Asoya said that the antidote could also be very effective in boosting human immune system and in curing of diabetic patients as well as enhance the fertility level among women.
While calling on the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to urgently intensify their efforts at providing the much needed cure for the disease, Asoya maintained that he was ready to offer his concoction for use.
He however noted that he had not obtained registration of his product from NAFDAC.
The trado-medical doctor said he was optimistic that his product would cure the disease and gave his GSM number 08112199753 for any enquiries, particularly for his assistance.
He commended Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state for taking proactive steps to curb the spread of the virus in the state.
Asoya lauded Deltans and residents in the state for adhering to several preventive measures such as social distancing, hygiene practice through consistent hand washing and more importantly, the lockdown/sit at home directives by the government.
It could be recalled that only last week, one Mr. Albert Ijeh of Asaba also claimed to have the cure for COVID-19.
