The Kwara state government has dismissed the rumour that amala is a cure for Covid-19.
After warning its residents, the government said it has set up a counter-rumour outfit to deal with misinformation.
It should also be noted that WHO has not recommended any specific treatment for coronavirus. The Kwara government has warned residents in the state that the popular yam flour food called amala cannot cure coronavirus.
This was made known by the permanent secretary to the Kwara state Ministry of Health, Abubakar Ayinla, who said this on Tuesday, April 14, during a health meeting.
In response to the rumour that has been circulating about amala and the cure of Covid-19, the government said it has set up a communication team to dismiss rumours.
