Herbalists Applaud Govt For Coronavirus Gesture

Traditional medical practitioners (TMCs) have commended the government for authorizing them to treat patients showing symptoms of the coronavirus.

TMCs believe the government’s decision would make members of the public more open to seeking their services.

Traditional Medicine Practitioners Council (TMPC) board member and Musimboti Traditional Science and Technology Institute director Morgan Zimunya had this to say:

That’s (allowing of traditional medical practitioners to administer their herbs to patients with COVID-19 symptoms) a great development coming from the Ministry of Health (and Child Care) in regards to traditional medicine in Zimbabwe.

TMP (Traditional Medicines Practitioners) Act 27:14 allows traditional medical practitioners to diagnose and treat any disease or body ailment, physical and spiritually for a fee.

The government’s decision to allow TMCs to administer herbs to COVID-19 patients was revealed in a letter written by the Ministry of Health and Child Care secretary and director-traditional medicine, Onias Ndoro to Harare City Council director of health Dr Prosper Chonzi.

In the letter dated 1 April 2020, Ndoro directed Dr Chonzi to allow a traditional medical practitioner, Kenneth Chivenzi to use his herbal product on patients diagnosed with COVID-19.
