Leader of Opposition and former Chief Minister Mukul Sangma has asserted the need to have scientific studies of local herbs in the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

“I was told…people in our rural areas are recovering (from COVID-19 by using some local herbs),” Sangma told reporters after a review meeting chaired by the Assembly Speaker on Monday.

Stating that local herbs are considered to be gifts from God, the leader of opposition said if they are capable of ensuring faster recovery of COVID-19 patients, further studies should be undertaken by the scientific community.

“…and scientific community will further studies and other scientific documentation can be done and necessary usage of such medicines can be administered,” he added.
