The president of the Nigeria Academy of Science, Prof. Motso Onuoha has proved Nigeria’s ability to find a cure to the Novel Covid-19 during a meeting in Abuja.
Prof. Motso Onuoha said, “Everybody is looking for a solution to the pandemic; even if we joked about the Madagascar cure, we cannot deny the attempt the nation was making to find a home-grown solution.
“Every nation has to make an effort to find a solution, and I believe that Nigerians can find a solution to the pandemic, but we have to search. I also know that before the advent of the white man medicine, our people were dealing with the diseases of the time with local solutions. Even though some of them were shrouded in mystery, there is no doubt they were able to find a solution to the sicknesses facing the people at that time.”
He commended the effort of the Ministry of Science and Technology in finding a cure for COVID-19.
“People are thinking of only herbal concoctions but some of the things that have been submitted to the ministry include computer apps for contact tracing, among others,” Onuoha said.
