Maurice Iwu

Days after former INEC chairman, Maurice Iwu, revealed that his institute had developed a potential cure for the coronavirus outbreak, the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonanya Onu, has said the United States is conducting tests on the ‘chemical compound’.

The Minister however dismissed reports suggesting that Iwu had found a cure for the disease, adding that his initial finding was that the compound could cure SARS.

Onu said, “They are testing it in the US to confirm whether this could be a cure for Covid -19 or SARS.

The US is currently battling the coronavirus outbreak with 11 deaths already reported in the country.
