Vaccines against Covid-19 won't be tested in Africa: WHO

Apr 07, 2020 20:44 IST

World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has said that Africa will not become testing ground for any vaccines against Covid-19. ‘Appalled’ by comments made last week by some scientists, who said the testing ground for the new vaccines will be Africa, Tedros said the hangover from a colonial mentality has to stop. Two French doctors have been accused of racism after a TV debate in which one suggested trials in Africa to see if a tuberculosis vaccine would prove effective against coronavirus, according to news reports.
