Thanks Neil for this posting. I am of the same mind and in agreement with the fact that clinical trials must be done. The issue is there must be patients with the disease or at first animals infected with the virus. Clinical trials are expensive in Africa but they still can be carried out. As a Medical Doctor and Chief Research Fellow I am very interested in conducting clinical trials on African medicinal herbs, especially Artemisia for the management of Coronavirus, if funding is made available. Research in general is expensive.
