COVID-19: Drogba gave out his Hospital to be used as isolation center

The former Ivorian professional footballer and Chelsea Talisman, Didier Yves Drogba has offered his hospital in Ivory Coast to be used as a treatment center to help manage COVID-19 cases.

Following the surge in the number of cases from a single case in March to 574 cases and counting with five deaths, the country obviously needed a backup and the award-winning player delivered.

The hospital which is located Abidjan was part of a foundation named the Didier Drogba Foundation, established by the player purposely to provide financial and material support in both health and education to people across Africa.

This gesture which was duly appreciated by government officials, the Ivorian people and applauded by lots of people across the world will go a long way to boost the numerous charitable works of the player.

Drogba was recently in the news for sternly criticizing some Doctors who suggested that a repositioned tuberculosis drug thought to be a possible cure for COVID-19 should be tested in Africa. A criticism that went viral and garnered support from Africans across the world.
