It quite horrible as French Doctors agrees that new COVID-19 drug should be tested in Africa.

Two French doctors were on a live television program discussing how a potential new treatment against #covid19 should be first tested in Africa. The same way experimental treatment for AIDS was done on prostitutes”.

It is horrible to see that in 2020, Westerners still see people from Africa as subjects for experimentation. Africans are seen as guinea pigs and lab rats. This is what normalized racism looks like

Nobody counters the arguments as both doctors agreed that people in Africa, just the same way sex-workers are considered like objects that can be used for tests.

Dr. Mira: “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?”

Dr. Locht: “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, I think there is a call for tenders that was released or that will be released & I think we will indeed seriously think about that too”

In the past drugs have been tested on Africa subjects. It is quite regrettable that Africans are still seen as Guinea pigs and Lab rats.
