“Some bio-active constituents of CVD PLUS are potential antiviral agents and immunomodulatory agents that can stimulate antibody production against coronavirus related diseases.”

Pax Herbal, in the statement signed on its behalf by Anselem Adodo, added that plant-based drugs, “whether crude or refined, are seemingly the best alternative approach to the COVID-19 menace”.
