Amala can’t cure Coronavirus – Kwara Govt. Warns Residents


Kwara State Government has urged residents not to succumb to claims making wave across the state suggesting that a local delicacy of yam flour, popularly referred to as ‘Amala’, cures the COVID-19 infection.

The Permanent Secretary, Kwara state Ministry of Health, Dr Abubakar Ayinla, stated this on Tuesday in Ilorin during the daily routine meetings of the medical team of the Kwara COVID-19 Technical Committee in the state.

Ayinla stated that the state government has set up the Risk Communication Teams, among others, to manage rumours and fake news circulating with regards to COVID-19 in the state.

He explained that the teams were set up to allay fears of misconception, while reiterating that COVID-19 has no cure for now and that Amala cannot cure it.
