    WHO declares vaccines as potentially unsafe because they aren't to be tested on nigs

    Coronavirus: Africa will not be testing ground for vaccine, says WHO

    The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) has condemned as "racist" the comments by two French doctors who suggested a vaccine for the coronavirus could be tested in Africa.

    "Africa can't and won't be a testing ground for any vaccine," said Director General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

    The doctors' remarks during a TV debate sparked outrage, and they were accused of treating Africans like "human guinea pigs".

    One of them later issued an apology.

    When asked about the doctors' suggestion during the WHO's coronavirus briefing, Dr Tedros became visibly angry, calling it a hangover from the "colonial mentality".

    "It was a disgrace, appalling, to hear during the 21st Century, to hear from scientists, that kind of remark. We condemn this in the strongest terms possible, and we assure you that this will not happen," he said.

    As the number of confirmed cases in Africa continues to rise, some governments are imposing stricter measures to try to slow the spread of the virus. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has banned all travel in and out of the capital, Nairobi, and three other large towns for three weeks.
    What did the doctors say?

    During a debate on French TV channel LCI, Camille Locht, head of research at Inserm health research group, was talking about a vaccine trial in Europe and Australia.

    Jean-Paul Mira, head of intensive care at Cochin hospital in Paris, then said: "If I can be provocative, shouldn't we be doing this study in Africa, where there are no masks, no treatments, no resuscitation?

    "A bit like it is done elsewhere for some studies on Aids. In prostitutes, we try things because we know that they are highly exposed and that they do not protect themselves."

    Mr Locht nodded in agreement at this suggestion, and said: "You are right. We are in the process of thinking about a study in parallel in Africa."

    Dr Mira had earlier questioned whether the study would work as planned on healthcare workers in Australia and Europe because they had access to personal protective equipment (PPE) while working.

    The show sparked widespread anger, including from former footballer Didier Drogba, who called the comments "deeply racist". He added: "Do not take African people as human guinea pigs! Its absolutely disgusting".

    Fellow former footballer Samuel Etoo called the doctors "murderers".

    The doctors' comments have also fuelled existing fears in Africa that African people will be used as guinea pigs for a new coronavirus vaccine.

    Coronavirus centres have been targeted in African countries - most recently, a facility that was under construction in Abidjan in Ivory Coast was attacked and destroyed by protesters.

    Footage posted on social media showed people tearing the centre apart with their bare hands, and smashing construction materials on the ground.

    Why the hell not? They certainly used the nigs for their ebola experiments.

    If vaccines are super safe, they why not test them on Africans? How is that murderous and racist to test these super safe vaccines on Africans?

    Remember vaccines are not tested for carcinogenic, mutagenesis and other dangers to health and wellness according to Joe imbriano.

    I think the head of the WHO is an Ethiopian.

    Director General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
    Why do all the "international leaders" have names that sound like they came out of science fiction novels from the 60's?
