The Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment, said that there are no known side effects for people who wish to use the pawpaw leaf extract, in addition to the usual medication, for the management of Dengue Fever.

Senior Pharmacist in the Ministry of Health, Ms. Colisia Mingo, said that the pawpaw leaf is a powerful home remedy, which works well when used along with conventional medication.

Ms. Mingo reiterated that, while Dengue Fever has no cure, the pawpaw extract should not replace the medication that will be prescribed.

She also reiterated that persons should ensure that they visit their healthcare provider when feeling ill, to ensure that their illness is identified in the soonest possible time, and treated.
