Ministry of Innovation and Technology has announced that they have approved a traditional medicine that was tested on humans and animals since the covid 19 outbreak started a few months. The medicine was developed by combining the modern and traditional medicine with the help of people with traditional medicine knowledge.

The news has created a heated discussion among many people. Some have stated that this can not be true while others are arguing that releasing this information now might make Ethiopians complacent and might increase the spread of the virus. Others have stated that they always believed that there would be some kind of traditional medicine in Ethiopia.
