He said on Twitter on Wednesday that he had "successful exchange with Dr. Tedros (WHO chief) who commends Madagascar's efforts in the fight against Covid19".

On Sunday Rajoelina urged the public to protect themselves from the novel coronavirus by drinking CVO. "If it were not for Madagascar, but a European country that had discovered the remedy COVID-Organics, would there be so many doubts?"

Madagascar had said the remedy called Covid-Organics was developed by the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research (Imra).

Confirming the call, the World Health Organization boss tweeted: "Good call with HE Rajoelina, President of Madagascar, about the #COVID19 situation in his country".

"We hope to count on the solidarity of Madagascar which has made available to us the COVID-Organics", Moise added.

"We have reached out to them [Madagascar]", he said during a programme on GTV.
