K.P Boateng blasts 'idiots' French Doctors for suggesting test vaccines for coronavirus be used in Africa first

Published on: 04 April 2020

Besiktas star Kevin Prince Boateng has blasted French Doctors Jean Paul Mira and Camille Locht for claiming BCG vaccines used for the treatment of Tuberculosis be used as test vaccines for coronavirus in Africa.

Dr. Mira on a TV Show said, "Can we not try these studies just like in AIDS research, in Africa where there is no mask, treatment, intensive care, or prostitutes? Because they are more prone to getting sick, they are not protected."

And Dr Locht  supported Mira's argument saying, "You are right. We are already considering doing a research in Africa in parallel with this research."

The statement by the two Doctors has not been received well by Africans with Football Legends Drogba and Samuel Eto'o condemning their comments as racist.

"Africa is not a test laboratory. I condemn these degrading, false and racist remarks," posted Drogba on Social Media. Eto'o joined with "Africa is not a test laboratory."

Boateng was vicious in his reaction describing the doctors as Idiots.

"Don't use Africa as your toy, you idiots," posted the Besiktas attacker.
