The Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba has given out his hospital as a treatment center for the coronavirus patients in his home country, Ivory Coast.
Didier Drogba has shown a touch of class. He has played a significant role in the fight against the unprecedented coronavirus back in his home country.
The Chelsea legend has made available his hospital to act as a treatment center during this pandemic. Drogba opened the hospital in the Ivorian capital of Abidjan back in 2016. The hospital as a whole is reportedly worth $1m in valuation.
Just as the virus continues to find its way in as many countries as possible, the first case of COVID-19 in the Ivory Coast was confirmed on March 11. The number of victims has drastically risen since then and is currently at 574 positive cases.
The Ivorian government recently announced 13 hospitals as treatment centers for the pandemic. In this case, the ex-Chelsea striker has decided to support by offering up his own as well.
Citizens such as Vincent Toh Bi Irie, the head of Abidjan’s region council have risen to give their appreciation to the legend.
Toh Bi Irie said, “We thank Drogba for this gift considered as an act of patriotism.”
After an illustrious career with Chelsea, Drogba hung his boots in 2018. Since then, he has occasionally used his finances to support various projects back in his country, Ivory Coast.
