Former Chelsea fc star Didier Drogba has offered his Abidjan hospital [Laurent Pokou Clinic] to the government meant to support in the fight against novel coronavirus in native Ivory Coast.
The hospital is named after Ivory Coast footballer Laurent Pokou, who died in 2016.
Ivory Coast has so far 574 confirmed cases of corona virus, 85 of whom have recovered while five have died.
The donated hospital is a sum of the 13 hospitals in Abidjan and 45 in the country that government will use as treatment centres for COVID-19 patients.
Champion Drogba came into Anti- COVID-19 limelights for his strong resentiments towards the French Doctors comments on having the corona virus vaccine first trials tested in Africa.
He (Drogba) together with colleague African football star Samuel Eto outrightly rejected the idea accusing the Doctors of racial defamation.
On a TV interview, Drogba was quoted warning that Africa is not a testing lab.
This made Dr Jean Paul Mira, Paris intensive care apologize for his racial utterances.
“I want to present all my apologies to those who were hurt, shocked and felt insulted by the remarks I clumsily expressed.” Dr Jean-Paul apologized
Didier T Drogba retired from Active football in November 2018. His sports career still sounds in English Premiere League’s Chelsea fc and other European clubs.
