  1. The French Doctor literally said Africa should be used as well as France and Aus and gave a solid reason why.

  2. Agree, why don’t the french test it out on the French first!

  3. Ah yes, Drogba and Eto’o, my go to sources for all medical matters.

    The doctors meant that trials should ALSO be done in Africa(its being done in Europe and Australia) because some of them lack the infrastructure to properly treat patients, therefore, they allow for a better look into the virus. I’m glad to see people are against research and science when they perceive a slight. Never mind that the people dying because of bad government infrastructure, and the world is in a global pandemic. Super rich football player is upset that he doesn’t have reading comprehension and puts his pride above lives. Funniest thing is that he teamed up with Nike to fund research to beat Tuberculosis in Africa which is exactly what he’s fighting against in this article. I’m sure he’ll fight the Coronavirus on the front lines, exposing himself to potential death just to find a cure, and won’t be sitting in his mansion(he lives in England btw) watching Netflix for a few months.

  5. Let’s go further and ban all drug exports to Africa, to make sure this never happens again.

  6. Well, yes, Africans are not test subjects by default.

    However, are we to understand that it has to be tested on people from somewhere else and Africans still want a possible vaccine? Maybe it’s advisable to test it in Africa as this continent has the greatest genetic variety and not testing it there could present a health risk to, well, Africans?

  7. The true last imperialists lol
