Two lawmakers in Madagascar have died of coronavirus and at least 25 members of parliament and of the senate have been infected with the virus, President Andry Rajoelina said late Sunday.

“One deputy died. A senator died. After the tests carried out on the deputies, 11 members of parliament were detected carrying the coronavirus. At the Senate, 14 people, senators and agents of Senate carry the coronavirus,” Mr. Rajoelina on national television late on Sunday.

“COVID-Organics”, Madagascar’s self-proclaimed, plant-based “cure” for COVID-19, was launched in April, despite warnings from the World Health Organisation that its efficacy is unproven.

Some African countries have received a shipment of COVID-Organics herbal cure despite not being validated by any scientific study.

On July 5, President Rajoelina placed its capital Antananarivo under a fresh lockdown following a new surge in infections, two months after the easing restrictions.


  1. Well, dying of COVID 19 is not an issue because God programmed my death to be caused by COVID 19 no man can change that no matter what position I hold in society or went through proper medical care, God’s will is final. Therefore as an African not from Madagascar, if there is a cure in Madagascar, there is cure for COVID 19 and it does not mean people in Madagascar will not die of COVID 19. Madagascar! Go head God is control in Jesus Christ Name.
