The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Sunday explained why the regulatory body has not approved any locally produced herbal medicine for the treatment of coronavirus.

This is just as the agency warns researchers in the nation’s ivory towers and other herbal medicine practitioners to desist from parading unverified medicinal products as a potential cure for the virus, without due approval from NAFDAC.
