Ivorian football legend, Didier Drogba has offered his hospital for treatment of coronavirus patients as the country prepares for a huge jump in cases upon claims that African countries are in grave danger of becoming the most affected in the world.

The hospital, which is based in the city of Abidjan, was opened in 2016 and named after former Ivory Coast footballer Laurent Pokou, who passed away the same year the hospital was launched.

Head of Abidjan’s regional council, Vincent Toh Bi Irie was full of praise for the Chelsea ex-football star for his ‘patriotic gesture,’ saying the hospital will help them fight the disease.

‘We thank Drogba for this gift considered as an act of patriotism,’ Toh Bi said.

However COVID-19 cases record in the country is over 500, with five deaths.
