The presidency said in a statement that the lockdown measures will be effective for a period of 15 days, starting from Monday July 6 to last until July 20.

The measures have been taken because of the spread of the virus and the rise of COVID-19 cases, according to the statement.

Madagascar’s President has been at the forefront of touting a herbal remedy that he says was effective against the virus.

The WHO has warned against consuming the herbal remedy in the absence of clinical trials.
