Madagascar has recorded its first Coronavirus disease death.
The casualty is a 57 year old man who was diabetic and a member of the medical staff.
This is coming after the country reportedly developed an acclaimed herbal mixture cure for the dangerous virus.
This was confirmed by the spokesman of the COVID-19 task force in the country, Hanta Danielle Vololontiana.
Volontiana said; “A man died from COVID-19 in Madagascar … he is 57 years old and a member of the medical staff.”
Malagasy President Andry Rajoelina had been in the news since April when his country launched an indigenous herbal remedy named Covid-Organics, which he said could “cure” COVID-19.
