Two French doctors have said Africa should be the first place where coronavirus vaccines are tested.

The comments which were made on live television certainly did not go down well among the black population in France causing outrage among the black natives

In an interview with a local TV channel LCI, one of the doctors named as Dr Jean-Paul Mira said “If I can be provocative, shouldn’t we do this study in Africa, where there are no masks, no treatment, no resuscitation, a bit like it has been done in some studies in AIDS, where among prostitutes, we try things, because they are exposed, and they don’t protect themselves, what do you think?”

The other doctor also named as Dr Camille Locht joined the conversation saying “So you are right[…]we’re thinking in parallel to a study in Africa precisely to make this same type of approach w/ BCG [vaccine]placebo.

Ivorian football star Didier Drogba among other personalities has expressed dissatisfaction over the comments making a case that Africans are not meant for clinical trials.

  1. Your very stupid for making such a suggestion try it on your people since they are dieying the more,who told you we don’t have mask etc fools we know your plans never ever try to attempt that nonsense Africa

  2. Allah knows best and that is why france first contracted the disease. Their death rate is almost that of the entire Africa. The doctor who made that pronouncement and others who think like him /her are a disgrace to nature.

  3. I don’t understand very well what the whitemen think for us Africans especialy French people (politics doctors )everyday they don’t sleep they think to destroy the Africans look many war,many infections are them so they think to destroy us with what they call vaccine of COVID-19 INFECTIONS who told u that we need it more than the Italians, even the French people,Americans spains, UK ,Germany not in Africans us we are saved before these crazy doctors made COVID -19 so now things are changed they still trying no sense

    I think they need our land but everyday God is in ourside that why the Africans are not laboratories of testing medicals go first for their families and their children

  4. Do forgive these French doctors because they still live in the darkness of medieval times. So sad that the XXI century hasn’t brought them any light. One wouldn’t have expected doctors to be this ignorant. Shame on you!!

  5. This is the time we supposed to come together as a global community and develop a workable solution to this pandemic. Dehumanising Africans in Africa by these French doctors and their like-minded folks will only create animosity and hatred and we will be loosing focus in fighting this battle. These irresponsible utterances must stop.

  6. If covid -19 vaccines are to be “tested” in Africa befbef this world pandemic crisis is control then, human reign this is our end of time. Foolish people!!!
