MoPH says Aolokzai’s vaccine is made of drugs

MoPH says Aolokzai’s vaccine is made of drugs

Jun 03, 2020 - 18:54

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Public Healthinfo-icon (MoPH) on Wednesday rejected “a vaccine” made by Hakeem Mohammad Alokozai as treatment for coronavirus and said the medicine was made of drugs such as morphine and opium.

Mohammad Alokozai, who moved to Kabul from southern Kandahar province after gaining rapid fame for treating coronavirus patients, claims he has produced a vaccine with the help of Tib-e-Nabavi tips and ancient Greek medical guidelines.

“The vaccine leads a coronavirus patient to complete recovery in only two hours”, claimed middle-aged Alokozai, saying a patient was administered only three drops of the herbal vaccine. 

Earlier, Alokozai had said Public Health Minister Ferozuddin Feroz and Kandahar Governor Hayatullah Hayat had also recovered from the coronavirus by using his home remedy.

But today, Wahid Majrooh, deputy spokesman for MoPH, told a press conference here the vaccine made by Mohammad Alokozai had been examined in the MoPH central laboratory.

He said their examination showed the vaccine was made of extracts morphine and opium. He said the vaccine might have a short time impact but it could cause addiction.

He expressed his deep concern over the virus spread across the country, saying some countrymen deliberately avoided Covid-19 test.

Earlier, Ashaqullah Saadati, head of MoPH diagnostic centre and laboratories, said the ministry had tasked a delegation with looking into Alokozai’s claim and was analyzing his vaccine. 

“Nowhere in the worldinfo-icon a vaccine is developed at home. This vaccine requires at least 18 months of research,” he opined, saying the ministry would examine the ingredients of the remedy.

He cautioned the people to heed guidelines from the health ministry and avoid using unapproved medicine. 

Over 16,000 people contracted the coronavirus across Afghanistan. At least 294 of them have died while more than 1,500 recovered from the pandemic so far.
