To strengthen the fight against Covi-19 viral disease, artemesia medicinal plant production will be intensified in the Upper Matsiatra region. The President of the Republic, Andry Rajoelina, accompanied by some members of the government, carried out, yesterday, a descent to Fianarantsoa, to personally lead the official launch of the massive distribution of the tisane Covid-Organics, and to visit the company «Bionexx SA», the first artemesia producer in Madagascar.
“Bionexx is one of the leading producers of artemesia in the country, and a major player in the cultivation of this medicinal plant. We plan to have an annual production of three thousand eight hundred and thirty (3,830) tons of artemesia leaves to manufacture antimalarial drugs. The Head of State asked us to increase our annual production, because the State needs raw materials to make Covid-Organics syrup», according to Dr Sylvain Giovanni Alson, Phd in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Head of Research and Development at Bionexx S A.
During the descent of the Head of State in Fianarantsoa, an operation of distribution of tisane of Covid-Organics and endowment of protective masks was carried out for all students of examination classes which will have to resume the classes from this day and Monday.
