Yabivuze nyuma y’uko igerageza rya mbere ry’urukingo rwiswe Ox1Cov-19 ryatangiriye muri Afurika y’Epfo mu cyumweru gishize, bikaba biteganyijwe ko rizakomereza no mu bindi bihugu.

Mu minsi ishize Abanyafurika bamwe barimo n’ibyamamare bamaganiye kure iby’igeragezwa ry’urukingo rwa Coronavirus muri Afurika.

Ni nyuma y’uko umuyobozi w’Ishami ry’Ubuvuzi mu Bitaro bya Cochin i Paris, Prof Jean Paul Mira n’uw’Ubushakashatsi mu Kigo gishinzwe Ubuzima n’Ubushakashatsi mu by’Ubuvuzi mu Bufaransa (Inserm), Prof. Camille Locht, batanze igitekerezo cy’uko urukingo rwa Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) rwakorwagaho ubushakashatsi rwageragerezwa muri Afurika.

Dr Mihigo avuga ko kuri iyi nshuro nta mpungenge abantu bakwiye kugira ku rukingo ruri kugeragezwa kuko rwizewe.

Ati “Amakuru [y’abamagana inkingo] yarakwirakwiriye cyane ku mbuga nkoranyambaga abahanga mu bya Siyansi b’Abafaransa bamaze kubivuga. Uretse igerageza ryatangiye muri Afurika y’Epfo, nta rindi gerageza ryigeze rikorwa muri Afurika. Icyo nshaka kubwira abantu ni uko iyo igerageza rikozwe hakurikizwa amategeko akomeye cyane ku buryo ubuzima bw’abaturage bushyirwa imbere.”

Yongeraho ko “Icyo ari ikintu OMS ikomeyeho cyane mu gukorana n’ibihugu bitegura izo nkingo ku buryo ubuzima bw’abaturage bushyirwa imbere, ku buryo nta mpamvu yo kugira ubwoba bw’urukingo.”

OMS ivuga iki kuri Covid Organics, umuti wa Madagascar?

Dr Mihigo avuga ko ubuvuzi gakondo bwemerwa kandi bugashyigikirwa na OMS, kuko hagaragaye indwara nyinshi zishobora kuvurwa hakoreshejwe ubuvuzi gakondo, hakaba “hari n’imiti ya gakondo yageragejwe neza kandi izwiho kugira ubuziranenge ikaba ishobora gukora neza” nk’uko Dr Mihigo abivuga.

Umuti unyobwa Madagascar yashyize ahagaragara witwa Covid Organics uba uri mu macupa muri ubu buryo

Dr Mihigo Richard avuga ko umuti wa Covid Organics wavumbuwe na Madagascar bigoye guhita wemezwa nk’umuti ushobora kuvura Covid-19. Icyakora ngo OMS iri gukorana n’iki gihugu kugira ngo hakorwe ubushakashatsi bwimbitse kuri uwo muti mbere y’uko wemezwa.

Kugeza ubu ku isi yose hari inkingo zigera ku 130 ziri gukorwaho ubushakashatsi, 17 muri zo zikaba ari zo zatangiye kugeragezwa mu bihugu byinshi byo mu Burayi, u Bushinwa na Leta zunze Ubumwe za Amerika.

Igerageza rya mbere ryatangiye ku mugabane wa Afurika mu gihugu cya Afurika y’Epfo ngo “riratanga icyizere ko urugendo rwo gushakisha urukingo ruri kugenda neza”. Gusa nanone Dr Mihigo yibutsa ko kubona urukingo bifata igihe kirekire ku buryo bigoye kuvuga igihe urukingo rushobora kubonekera.

Gusa ngo ibipimo bya mbere biragaragaza ko urwo rukingo rushobora gukora rukanafasha abantu.

Hari n’ibindi bihugu muri Afurika byiteguye gutangiza igeragezwa ry’urukingo kugira ngo haboneke ibihugu byinshi inkingo zageragerezwamo ku buryo umunsi urukingo ruzaboneka rushobora kugirira Abanyafurika akamaro.
