Namibia’s Health Minister Kalumbi Shangula has warned people against using elephant dung to “cure” Covid-19. BBC Africa reports that some traditional healers say the elephant dung can be steamed and inhaled as a treatment for flu, headaches and nosebleeds but the practice has not been scientifically tested. Shangula is quoted as saying by the AFP news agency “I am worried about unscrupulous people who would make other people spend money on useless remedies in the hope that they will be cured”. Namibia has to date confirmed 4,464 Coronavirus cases and 37 deaths.
