Despite rejecting the herbal cure by government, hundreds of Cameroonian rush to get the Archbishop’s coronavirus herbal cure.
Cameroonians have been populating the Douala Archdiocese of the Roman Catholic Church where the Archbishop claims he has the herbal cure for the coronavirus.
Some authorities have been trying to make the the archbishop’s treatment widely available due to the popularity of the alleged cure.
The curate of St. Paul’s Parish of the Douala Archdiocese, Paul Nyaga said ever since the information of the Archbishop’s COVID-19 herbal cure began circulating a week ago, many have been rushing to the clergy’s parish for help.
He said the parish had been overwhelmed receiving a huge number of people from Yaounde, Bafoussam, and Douala.
These people confirmed they had been tested positive for the COVID-19, reason why they had to rush for the cure.
The clergy said he told these people to go to the catholic hospitals in the archdiocese where they would be treated with the herbal cure.
Among those rushing the cure is a 27 year old hairdresser.
According to her she wanted to see the archbishop because she was told his cure is free and effective.
She said she could not afford the hospital bills for her sister who was tested n Douala.
On April 25, 2020, the bishop told state media CRTV that he has treated dozens of Cameroonians including eight health workers who manifested coronavirus-like respiratory symptoms.
Kleda also confirmed that it was dues to his 30 years of experience in medicinal plant research that enabled him to find a cure for the virus.
Last week, the government through the minister of public health assigned a team of doctors and researchers to ascertain the validity of the bishop’s cure.
According to the public health minister Malachie Manaouda, the government would make the cure available to COVID-19 patients if the bishop is proven right with his cure.
Nevertheless, Dieudonne Kameni of the Cameroon Medical Council emphasized that, for now, patients of the virus should depend on treatments only from approved government hospitals.
