Uganda’s drug Enforcement agency (NDA) reveals that after serious engagements with the innovators of a local therapeutic herb that treats covid-19 and full assessment of the product, NDA has finally given green light to the selling of covidex in-licensed drug outlets for supportive treatment in the management of viral infections but not as a cure of covid 19.
According to Dr. David Nahamya secretary to NDA says they have engaged with the manufacturers of this drug called Jena herbals Uganda limited and now they say the product is of good quality and safe in supportive treatment in the management of viral infections of covid 19.
Addressing the media in Kampala today he encouraged Ugandans to use the product but under the guidance of a professional health worker.
Nahamya also adds that as NDA they will continue monitoring the safety of covidex and calls on the general public to immediately report any side effects from the use of this product.

I am lately reading alot of mixed reactions about COVIDEX herbal extract and it’s effectiveness in the treatment of COVID-19.
Well I have just recovered from the deadly virus but I can say COVIDEX is effective in the treatment of COVID-19 though from my lay point of view but also as someone who used this drug at last.
Day1 upto day 4 I was being managed on Azithromycin tabs, Vit C, Zinc, Prednisolone, Myospa and Ibrufen.
I was steaming and taking the concoction as advised by medical experts but each day I got even worse.
Day 5 I nearly lost the battle to covid-19 as I had developed serious breathing complications. I could hear my caretaker begin to make arrangements with the hospital to come home and take me to ICU, nobody wanted me to die from home, I couldn’t ask which one because of my condition but I was afraid of Mulago because in my mind this place would speed up my death.
Day 6 I was brought COVIDEX, I had never seen or even heard about this drug pictured but I was fighting to live so I began instantly with the recommended prescription (6drops) in the throat. On this day I began to vomit a lot but I continued taking the drug
On Day 7 the cough and vomiting became too much and I began losing all the remaining energies. I was administered Normal saline and dextrose to boost I think my energies.
On day 8 I began to feel that every time I took my COVIDEX, I could feel a stable condition, the cough and flu began to go, breathing started to improve, I even ate the 1st genuine meal
On day 9 I made it out of the house on my own.
Day 10, the flu stopped but still had mild cough, I kept on with the COVIDEX and steaming.
Day 12 I got back to my normal self, I was fine and got back a life that we saw going slowly a few days back. Guys just get COVIDEX, your relatives will die waiting for NDA to approve it, nobody will negotiate your life back for you if you keep questioning every effort in managing covid-19, after all, who approved the ones we were given at first, it is simply being tested as well.
