Conversation with Jean-Jacques Schul on the usefulness of Artemisia annua against malaria and its potential against COVID-19. This guy really knows the research on Artemisia annua. He is urging the governments of the world to speedily do research on Artemisia annua to verify its potential to treat Covid-19. Jean points out many ways it is very plausible that it would work as a tea and that it can’t be ruled out at this time.  I highly recommend this plant works against malaria, many other viruses, other coronaviruses, and some cancers.  As Jean says “Artemisia annua is a jewel of China’s pharmacopeia.” This plant may also be of use in future pandemics.  Keep some in your garden.  You can grow it in the cold temperate zone to the equator.
