President of Madagascar, Andry Rajoelina has visited the 'Pharmalagasy' pharmaceutical factory in Tanjombato on June 30 where the President of the Republic has announced that the three laboratories of this factory will be able to produce up to fifteen thousand (15 000) units of CVO + capsules per minute.
He said, "International standard clinical trials and rigorous production tests are underway. Within a month, it will produce CVO + capsules for the Malagasy."
En moins de deux mois, l'usine PHARMALAGASY est sur pied avec la capacité de produire 15 000 gélules/minute. Des essais cliniques aux normes internationales et des tests rigoureux de production sont en cours. D'ici un mois, elle produira les gélules CVO+ pour les Malagasy. pic.twitter.com/mrvCVG8wT6— Andry Rajoelina (@SE_Rajoelina) June 30, 2020
Andry Rajoelina said that laboratory testing on animals is underway. Tests on humans will also be planned before the official launch of this Madagascan drug.
The factory will manufacture both a preventive and a curative specialty. He said the two CVO + specialties will be officially launched within a month.
Furthermore, he stressed during this visit that he is in perfect health, contrary to rumors circulating in social networks that he went outside to receive care against the coronavirus that he had contracted, hence the reason for Prime Minister, Christian Ntsay's intervention at the Nation last Sunday, in his place.
"I am doing well, I do not have coronavirus. We have medicines for COVID-19, so you don't have to go abroad to get treatment, "he said.
